Amazingly resilient children

Zion Harvey caught a deadly infection as a toddler, and doctors were forced to remove his hands and feet. Ever spunky and optimistic though, this 8-year-old received an incredible gift in the form of a compatible hand transplant. After 10 hours of surgery from the doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, this incredibly brave little boy became the world’s youngest person to ever receive a double hand transplant.

Awesome!
