Meet Honored Child Heaven

Welcome back Heaven, now a two-time Honored Child!

Heaven is 8 years old, and lives with her mom and her sister, Sophia. She enjoys camping, playing outside, reading and swimming, and she did at least 3 out of 4 at Candlelighters Family Camp. Last year’s camp was an especially memorable one for Heaven, because one of her best friends, Caitlyn, also attended.

When she grows up, Heaven wants to be a scientist who studies rocks. She looks up to her friend Zelda because she is kind. A fun fact about Heaven - she was featured in a news story with RFAC riders Mary Holt and her dad, Steve Holt last year! See the video here.

Heaven was diagnosed with ALL Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood and bone marrow cancer that affects the lymphoid cells, at the age of 2, and then had a relapse in 2019.
