Rasam, diagnosed with leukemia (A.L.L) in 2007, is a 16-year old adolescent who overcame cancer in 2011 after four years of arduous treatment.
"My heart is full of Rasam’s love helping me overcome all difficulties. He suffered from cancer for 5 years. Even when all physicians were losing hope, I didn't. I have maintained my resistance spirit, not only in the four years of his treatment, but also during all the 16 years of his life, and I firmly believe that this spirit helped me become strong and robust during these years. More importantly, I never lose hope in God’s support," Rasam's mother said.
Rasam, who passionately introduces himself as ‘Dr. Rasam’, is studying in the sixth grade with a hopeful glance to the future.
