My Story

Vijay Anand Hassan Nagendra lost his 6 year battle with brain cancer at the age of 17 on October 5, 2009 at his home. Beloved as a son, brother and friend, Vijay will be remembered for his resilience against hardship, determination to enjoy life, and sense of service to others. He fought disease relentlessly, and repeatedly beat the odds with unexpected comebacks. His ability to continue laughing and joking, even when in need, was an inspiration to others. He was always armed with a joke to lift a serious mood. He was touched by many friends, neighbors and extended family who brought him care and encouragement when he most needed it. He gave back through Camp Challenge and through Bread for the World's annual Walk for the Hungry and looked forward every year to participate at the Tulane University St. Baldrick's shave day.
