Yehuda was 10 years old when he was diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma in the summer of 2022. Yehuda’s mother was nine months pregnant with their family’s fifth child and the combination of a new baby and a child with cancer was extremely stressful for them. Yehuda’s mother, a nurse practitioner student, had to take a full year off work. Yehuda’s father had to stop working overtime.
Yehuda is very active. He loves Sky Zone and, before his cancer diagnosis, had no medical history. He loves video games and making people laugh. According to his mother, he wants to be a famous Youtuber “like all other ten year olds”. He was pronounced “no evidence of disease” in November 2022.
Yehuda’s family received a Deep Needs Grant from JUST TRYAN IT. They used the money to pay their mortgage. Yehuda’s family is proud to now be helping other families fighting cancer.
