Spine Tumor
Kimberly Parrish Baxley

When I was four years old I started falling a lot. Then it got to where I could not get off of the floor by myself. My parents brought me to Children's Hospital. They ran tests and they found a tumor on my spine. My parents started a prayer chain. The next morning the doctor prepared to do surgery. He did one last X-ray and the tumor was gone. To me that is a miracle.

This hospital meant a second chance at life for me and my family.
