Caesar Sant is something of a childhood prodigy. He started playing the violin at two years old, and amazed his instructors with his prowess on the stringed instrument. At four, he could do third-grade math and speak six languages. By five, however, the sickle cell disease, which he had been diagnosed with at birth, was taking its toll. Caesar suffered three strokes, and the last had left him unable to play the violin or even walk.
