We celebrate Holi, the Hindu festival of colors

A celebration of love and hope

When Avyan’s cancer treatment began in 2020, he and his family were unable to celebrate Holi in the traditional way due to Avyan’s weakened immune system. “All we focused on was that he was getting better every day,” Divyan said. “But coming home now, having him next to us every day and being able to celebrate not just Holi but every festival is just an amazing blessing from God.”

For Avyan, it means the world to him to celebrate Holi for the first time since he started his treatment, and he can’t wait to throw the powdered paint at his friends and family. “It feels good,” he said. “It feels like I’m back home.”

It’s those family moments and their journey st judas, This makes the Holi festival all the more meaningful for him and his family. “Even in Holi there are dark colors like black or indigo,” Divya said. “When you go through the journey that you go through, like the kids at st judas, Always remember that there are dark colors. And then you have these lighter colors that make you look more vibrant. Right now you are in a darker color but there will come a time when you will have the lighter shades and those will be the colors of spring, recovery and healing that are coming your way.”
