"My parents did everything they could to survive," Milcic recently told CSNNE.com. "They did a lot of stuff, a lot of stuff. My mom was working a lot of jobs in her life, my father too. My father also worked on the side to make money." CSNNE.com

The 13-year-old would have to live on his own and learn how to support himself. Milcic made the move. "[I lived] by myself," Milicic, now 27, said.

During the bombings we went through a lot of [stuff]. For me, it was good to play basketball. I didn't think about [being on my own] because it was just two hours from home." CSNNE.com
