This young man has a complicated childhood; he lost his mother in a car accident and was removed from his father’s care for safety concerns. Daeshaun is no living with caring guardians (friends of his mother) and thriving. He is an active participant in his own medical care and plans to graduate from high school so he can make the transition to college and eventually start his own business. Daeshaun has not allowed his illness or difficult family history stand in his path.
