At just 2 years old, Zion Harvey lost both his hands due to a life-threatening infection that caused multi-organ failure. In fact, after that he underwent two years of dialysis before receiving a kidney transplant from his mother.
Despite these challenges, he grew up as a happy boy and truly grateful for what he had in life. Still, his heart had a wish. A big wish.
For all of his conscious lifetime, Zion dreamed of that he could do something that most of us take for granted: just hold something in his two hands.
Fortunately, the doctors at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia found a way to make the seeming impossibility of having two fully functional hands become a true medical miracle. Watch the uplifting news video below and see it for yourself:
