“Every night I pray for luck / and let my body decide the rest.” -Victor Mendevil
Third grade was a “challenging time” for Victor Mendevil.
Unlike most kids, Mendevil wasn’t playing sports or running around the playground. He has myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune neuromuscular condition that significantly weakens his body. It made physical activity difficult and required regular trips to the hospital throughout elementary and middle school as he received countless treatments and surgeries.
