After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in the beginning of last year, 16-year-old Phillip Yurchenko knew he wasn't alone. He was connected to the hundreds of teens who had pledged to do mitzvot in his merit at last year's International CTeen Shabbaton, on March 1, 2014. On Sunday, March 1, 2015, exactly one year later, a healthy and very thankful Phillip addresses the teens who performed mitzvot on his behalf.
