Eighteen-year-old Pavan from Enfield was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a cancer of the white blood cells, in August 2011. To fight the disease, Pavan has had to undergo a lengthy course of intensive chemotherapy treatment which has made him feel very poorly and resulted in long stays in hospital.
Pavan wants to be an astrophysicist and he told Starlight that his greatest wish would be to have a zero gravity flight. The charity arranged for him to have an amazing ZERO-G flight in America which was an incredible once-in-a-lifetime weightless experience! For the full story, click here.
