Picture of the Viduya Family

First time parents Marcel and Mercy Viduya were thrilled to welcome their son, Marcley, into the world - albeit 8-weeks early.

Marcley’s premature birth required him to remain hospitalized several weeks after Mercy was discharged. The Viduya family, who live more than 30 miles from the hospital, found a home-away-from-home at the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House where they stayed during those challenging first weeks of Marcley’s life. The Viduya family recently made another visit to the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House when the family welcomed a new daughter, Miracle. Marcley and his new sister are both happy and healthy and the Viduya family is grateful for the support they received during their difficult time.
