An 11-year-old kid from Hyderabad is selected among 15 children from across the globe to compete in the chess category at the World Children’s Winners Games that was held in Moscow specially for children who fought life-threatening diseases. This little brave heart missed the bronze medal by a close margin while the story of his life-struggling journey makes him a real hero.
With the help of his strong will and persistence, Aadish Cheruku emerged cancer free!
Born and grew up in Hyderabad, Aadish was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoplastic Leukaemia when he was just five. Unbelievably, his condition was so serious that he had to spend nine months in isolation in a hospital. After battling all the odds with his strong will and persistence, Aadish finally emerged cancer-free.
Initially Aadish had started playing chess to pass his time during his diagnosis in the hospital. Two years ago, he was introduced to a professional coach. According to his coach, his reading of the game is immaculate and will surely be a champion if he continues the practice.
It is a fact that not only Aadish but many young children are fighting such kinds of terminal illnesses. In such situation, parents are responsible to save and protect their kids.
The Don’t Give Up World team is proud of Aadish’s courage and perseverance despite all odds because of which he has been able to turn around the attitudes of people towards him.
