Watch and be inspired by Olivia's story:
Olivia, an avid horseback rider as a teenager, had years of unexplained symptoms—until one day she fell off of her horse. Her parents share their journey of taking her to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital where they learned that she had a rare tumor and would need surgery. Under the care of world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr. George Jallo and the Institute for Brain Protection Sciences, Olivia is getting her life back as healthy high schooler.
