After a concussion landed Holland at the doctor’s office, a routine CT scan revealed the last thing she and her family expected—a brain tumor. In March 2015, Holland underwent a nine-hour surgery to remove the growth that was located very close on her brain to her movement and sensory centers. After the procedure, the young athlete had to relearn daily activities like how to tie her shoes and walk unassisted at the Children’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Program. She is now back on the field playing soccer, and this past spring she became a strong starter on the JV volleyball team after working her way up from second string in just a few short weeks.
