A short #offthepitch post to report my extreme happiness and relief that former U.S. national team player, Lauren Holiday has had a successful surgery to remove a benign tumor from her brain. The surgery was just a month after giving birth to a baby girl; my gawd the stress! And I read that she was having terrible extreme headaches.  It was touching to see the world of sports rally around Lauren and her husband, Jrue Holiday (also the baby's name, so cute) - a pro basketball player. 

Watch the video above for more formal details. I don't know Lauren, but her story was compelling in its reminder that sports stars are just like everyone else, living complex lives off the field with struggles and joys along with good times and bad times. As a mom myself, it has been a gripping story to follow with lots of good energy going out to her and her family. I wish them all good health and recovery. #offthepitch
