Eleven-year-old Haven Parks has brittle bone disease, which means his bones fracture easily. He's already had 56 fractures and undergone 14 surgeries. His mom says the team at Riley Hospital for Children has been there for them every step of the way. Thanks to Haven's care at Riley, he's able to lead a joyful life and even participate in swimming.

This weekend, he will be throwing out the first pitch at the Indianapolis Indians game!
