Sagen's Magic Show!

Come watch amazing and inspirational high school cancer survivor, Sagen, perform a magic show from 8:30 - 9am. You won't want to miss it! 

"Sagen was diagnosed with high grade Osteosarcoma in May 2015. Suddenly, baseball season was over and our second home became UCLA Pediatric Oncology. He started aggressive chemotherapy followed by surgery on September 2, 2015 in hopes of saving his right tibia. After that, chemotherapy resumed. March 2016 was Sagen's last chemotherapy. His life was saved and he is now back to baseball for Foothill High School. 
 
During the exhausting and boring days being bedridden, Sagen discovered a love for magic. He would watch YouTube videos and practice over and over. He started doing Magic shows from his bed for the hospital staff. He was amazing everyone with his talents as well as overcoming all odds with his fight against cancer."
