This year’s superhero is Liam “He-Man” Holland and is hands down the bravest baby we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Diagnosed with neuroblastoma only hours after birth, Liam is an amazing little guy that is less than a year old! Liam is the son of Devin and Elizabeth Holland of Russellville. His sister, Madi, is four years old. His cancer affects his kidney and the surrounding area. Liam has undergone several rounds of chemo at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and was referred to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for a surgery consult. On January 29, 2015 Liam was officially deemed cancer free after an operation was conducted to remove the tumor. Although the battle isn’t completely over, the outlook for Liam is spectacular!
We interviewed our candidates on Saturday and couldn’t pick just one… So we picked 3! Our beneficiaries of the 2nd Annual Superhero 5K are 13 year old Korey Heath from Dover, 3 year old Morgan Schwehm from Russellville, and 3 year old Breya Bunting from Dardanelle. In the spirit of three female beneficiaries, our slogan this year is “Fight Like A Girl”! Stay tuned for the stories and pictures of our girls and more race info!
A race to increase child cancer awareness and bring the community together.
