Mario Gil Motorsports

At the age of 5, Mario was faced with a diagnosis of a rare form of Cancer called, LCH (Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis). The disease caused him to have multiple bone lesions and serious base of skull involvement. During the course of the disease, his pituitary was damaged leaving him with another rare and lifelong condition called, Diabetes Insipidus. It took 2 years for the doctor’s at Children’s Hospital to control the LCH, but there is no cure for the Diabetes. While going through chemotherapy and undergoing many surgeries and scans, Mario’s enjoyment of cars and racing are what kept him upbeat and happy. Mario has had to face many challenges in his life so far, but he has pushed through them and he does not want to waste any more time.

He wants to race and show everyone what he can do!
