Yash's Passing & Story Yash sadly passed away on June 24th, 2017 after battling brain cancer since 2012. He fought the battle, and overcame several obstacles, with courage and strength. Depsite being diagnosed with brain cancer and fighting through five brain operations, two rounds of radiation therapy, and chemotherapy over the span of five years, Yash maintained a positive mindset and had faith that whatever was meant to be would be. However, Yash truly was a fighter. He was a selfless being and always put others first before himself, even during his battle with brain cancer. Yash left this world ensuring that his family, including his two children, were going to be ok to continue with out him. When thinking of what Yash would want for a world after him, the family knows that he would want every individual to have access to the medical care needed in order to live a life full of happiness; giving them a fighting chance; something he was blessed to have in his life and during his time of need.
