2017 TORCH AWARDS FAMILY OF THE YEAR

The Harvey Family is the epitome of hope, courage, perseverance and love.  In 2008, at the age of 2, Zion Harvey developed sepsis, a life-threatening infection that attacked his entire body and eventually required amputation of both of his hands and his legs below the knee. The infection also damaged Zion’s kidneys and two years later, he underwent an organ transplant, receiving a kidney from his mother, Pattie Ray.

Despite this rocky start, in the years that followed Zion grew strong and healthy. He received prosthetics for his feet, and was able to walk, run and jump with complete independence.  A happy and outgoing child, he learned to adapt well to life without hands, learning to eat, write and even play video games with his residual limbs. He figured out ways to perform most of the activities other kids his age could do.
