At age 4, musical prodigy Caesar Sant could play Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky on the violin, knew six languages and was easily doing third-grade math.
At age 5, he had his first stroke. It was a blow that hit the reset button on the musical and intellectual prowess of Caesar, who had been diagnosed with sickle cell disease at birth and began playing violin at age 2.
“I did my best to get better, but it was very scary because they put a bunch of needles in me and I could not move,” said Caesar, now 9. “This year my father will have the money, I hope so, to take me somewhere so I can have my transplant.”
