9 -year-old Zion Harvey was given the honor of throwing out the first ceremonial pitch at a Baltimore Oriole’s game. He became the first kid in the world to receive a bilateral hand transplant!

Last year Zion went into surgery for more than 12 hours as doctors did the impossible. They gave him two new hands.

When zion was just two years old, he lost his hands and legs from a life-threatening infection. When he was just 4, he had a kidney transplant, with his mother being the donor.

Needless to say, this boy has been through much suffering already. Thank God for this beautiful blessing!
