When Lars was 8 years old he decided he was going to be a professional footballer.
But his legs failed him. He was diagnosed with cancer.
At 8 years of age he weighed only 17 kg and everyone thought we was going to die.
On year after his cancer diagnosis he was back on the football field.
Because of his friends pleading and support Lars finally started playing again.
Lars is now 28. He never became the football star he dreamt of being but he has started playing basketball. He has played professionally in Italy and for the Swedes national team. He has also won the Swedish wheelchair basketball championships three times.
