Author and Paralympics ski racer, Josh Sundquist's chance for survival was a slim 50 percent, but the now 25-year-old UVa Children's Hospital patient beat the odds and lives to share his story.
Tuesday night, Sundquist shared his challenge and triumph with bone cancer to a group at UVa's Alumni Hall. The event was an opportunity for the children's hospital to share the progress made on a new outpatient and procedure building.
"We have a good understanding of what the outside will look like, a good understanding of what the inside will look like, and with the modern miracle of animation we've been able to give people a visual tour of the new facility," said CEO of the UVa Medical Center, Ed Howell.
The Barry and Bill Battle Building is slated to open in 2013.
