Hunter Stevens was a typical 11-year-old — until the day he was paralyzed by a rare stroke during gym class. He was rushed to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, where our doctors discovered a small tumor fragment in his brain. During two days of intense surgery, they removed it, along with the tumor in his heart that had produced it. Now Hunter is on the road to recovery, and he’s making great progress. One remarkable day at a time.
