3-year-old Alaskan with cancer honored by Portland mariachi band he loves

AnchorageJune 4, 2013 

Three-year-old Renvek Larson of Sutton has been getting treatment in Portland, Ore., for a rare form of cancer. During visits to a local Mexican restaurant, the boy developed a liking for the house band, Mariachi Portland. As The Oregonian reports, the band members adored Renvek, too, and decided give him a treat on his next visit. The newspaper had a photographer there to record the bestowing of honorary mariachi status on the little Alaskan. The photos are too cute for words. Find out more about Renvek on his Facebook page.
