A legacy that Arnav's friends and family will carry with them on their own life journey.
In a 2017 essay, Arnav wrote that 'cancer has taught me many things. It has taught me to appreciate what I have and enjoy the simple things in life… It has also taught me the value of friendship. Through [my treatments], many of my friends visited me and I had a great time when they would come over. They gave me hope and kept me positive even in the darkest of times.'
