Amazing Kids, Amazing Stories: Sarah's Story

Help Our Amazing Kids: Make a Donation to American Family Children's Hospital

Sarah Holm started skiing at age 6. It became her lifelong passion. By 11, her legs felt weak and a tumor was discovered, which recurred after surgery and attached to her spine.

American Family Children's Hospital pediatric neurosurgeon Benny Iskandar, MD, suggested they "go for broke" with a radical surgery.

Very sadly, Sarah passed away on June 11, 2016, in an automobile accident. Her family hopes her video story will always inspire people to overcome obstacles of all sizes.
