Holden Harless

At the age of 2, Holden began to complain of pain in his lower back, and he endured many tests, but they couldn’t figure out the correct issue. He went to Riley for an MRI, and they discovered that Holden’s pain was caused by a tumor the size of a Vienna sausage inside his spine. His family was informed that if the tumor remained, Holden would be paralyzed in six months. Holden had surgery to remove the tumor growing around his vertebra and nerves, and he regained his mobility. Holden is now able to be active and play football thanks to the doctors at Riley Hospital!
