Sending so many good wishes!

Former US soccer star Lauren Holiday, who has won two Olympic gold medals as part of the U.S. National team, is pregnant with her first child. The athlete, due in October, was also recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Now, while facing one of the most exciting times of her life, she’s also facing one of the scariest.

Holiday and husband Jrue Holiday, point guard for the NBA team New Orleans Pelicans, admit the diagnosis was ‘devastating’ but are doing what they can to prepare for the birth of their first child and face Lauren’s battle with cancer.
