THRISSUR: Cancer tried to defeat the body of bodybuilder Prasad. As a result, his body became lean. Doctors said that he would not live beyond six months. However, Prasad did not surrender...

While undergoing treatment at RCC, Thiruvananthapuram, he also did push-ups, weight lifting and other exercises. This determination and strength of mind not only helped him to defeat cancer but also win the Mr India title!
