For three months, a baseball-sized tumor dominated 11-year-old Drake Price’s life. His father, Miles Price, explained to Inside Edition that Drake had experienced flu and migraine symptoms for several weeks before he was admitted to the hospital. These symptoms all culminated in the family’s worst nightmare when Drake had a stroke.
“The doctors tried sending us home, but my wife insisted they do a CT scan to find out why,” Miles said. “That’s when we found out he had a baseball-sized tumor on his brain attached to everything critical in his brain.”
Although the tumor turned out not to be cancerous, Drake still needed to remain in the hospital’s care for three months.
Drake’s dream is to be a police officer, so when the Indianapolis Police learned about his recovery battle and found out he was preparing to go home, it didn’t take long for them to formulate a plan.
