• A Child Prodigy, a Painful Disease, and a Life-Changing Treatment

by Mindy Yang


Caesar Sant of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, began playing the violin at age two and as a toddler amazed his music teachers with his advanced abilities. But by the age of five, he had suffered three debilitating strokes due to sickle-cell anemia. His third stroke left him unable to walk or play the violin. Now, as he tries to regain his musical abilities, he has a newborn sister who can provide a bone marrow transplant that could be lifesaving and could ensure he'll always be able to play the violin.
