I'm Not Average: Vishav

Condition:
Leukemia


Age:
11


Location:
Springfield, VA


When Vishav was four, he was diagnosed with leukemia. After three and a half years of treatment, he became a survivor on November 9, 2012.


The years during treatment were hard on his whole family, but Vishav, who was in pain often and needing hospitalization frequently, now enjoys a life as an 11-year-old boy – enjoying the pool, playing baseball (he’s an avid Yankees fan), and even plays in the snow with his sister, Simran, and his neighborhood friends. Smart, friendly and healthy, Vishav is a strong boy who has gone through a lot, but keeps on fighting, and his family is thankful to have such a fun, energetic boy in their lives.
