When he was 13 years old, Sunny Sidhu was diagnosed with scleroderma. At the time, he was a solid young athlete, with dreams of becoming a professional tennis player.
“That was sidelined,” he said.
As he grew into adulthood, his condition caused him to lose a finger, both big toes and part of his right foot. He’s had multiple skin grafts and two bypass surgeries on his right leg artery. But still, he discovered new dreams – dreams he was admirably able to achieve.
Having the “gift of gab,” Sunny went into television as a local entertainment anchor and a correspondent for international networks. He toured as a festival/club DJ for more than 20 years. He’s done stand-up comedy, worked as an actor and produced documentaries. And currently, he’s a top producer with RE/MAX.
“I don’t believe scleroderma is a life sentence,” he said. “It’s a life.”
