“[Caesar is] very remarkable, he is unbelievable sometimes,” his strings teacher, Hongmei Zhou, said. “Kids learn real fast, and he is obviously very fast.”
Despite his amazing knack for playing the violin while reading a complicated sheet music, the young genius is currently suffering from sickle anemia that led to two strokes in six months. One was bad enough to render his bowing arm to be temporarily paralyzed.
Caesar’s family, including his nueroscientist father Lucas Santos, turned to a stem cell bone marrow transplant to save the boy, a process offered by Johns Hopkins University. However, this procedure would cost $500,000, according to the Winston Salem Journal.
