Throwing The First Pitch Is A Child's Dream. For This 9-Year-Old, It Was Monumental

Post by Guest on Sun Aug 07, 2016 7:08 am

Last summer, Zion Harvey became the first child to receive a double hand transplant.
This week, the 9-year-old baseball fan lived out what most kids his age only dream about: throwing out the first pitch at a professional baseball game.

Zion, who lives in Maryland just outside of Baltimore, threw out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday at the Baltimore Orioles game against the Texas Rangers.


Zion lost both hands and his feet when he was 2 years old to a life-threatening bacterial infection that also led to a kidney transplant.
Last July, he underwent the 10-hour bilateral hand transplant surgery performed at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He continues to receive outpatient rehabilitation therapy.

That's a really heart warming story.
His hands look brilliant, he must have worked so hard through so much pain to achieve what he has at such a young age.

I think it's brilliant when sports people help kids like this, it truly is a dream for a child to appear with the sports stars they look up to.
