Thursday's Hero

Today's Thursday's (Friday's) Hero was Hannah Laursen, a nine-year-old girl from Provo, Utah. Hannah and her family were on vacation in Florida back in June when she began complaining of headaches. After going to the hospital the doctors told Hannah and her family she was just suffering from migraines but would carry out protocol and perform a CT scan. The results of the scan showed Hannah had a brain tumor which required immediate emergency surgery. Since that time Hannah has undergone three major surgeries and two rounds of chemotherapy.
