Jarron Holden — Emergency Success Story

A basketball team tryout turned tragic when 13-year-old Jarron Holden’s heart stopped on the court. At Methodist Charlton Medical Center, the emergency team fought to stabilize him so he could be transferred to a pediatric hospital, where he was later diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. Now through the Holden Strong Awareness Campaign, Jarron and his family are raising awareness about the importance of sports physicals and heart screening.
