PIEDMONT - The 2017 recipient for the Tri-Towns Homefest Truck Pull is 1-year-old Holley Crowe.
On April 2, 2017, Holley Ann Crowe was found to have a mass on her spinal cord after her parents Mike and Leann noticed some changes in her.
The biopsy report showed the mass to be malignant and Holley was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer known as AT/RT (atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor).
Holley is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy at Johns Hopkins.
Her dad Mike works for CSX and Leann has an in-home day care. Leann is not able to work at this time, however, so she can be with Holley to  make sure she gets the care she needs.
Due to Holley’s illness, Mike and Leann have been staying in the hospital with their daughter and traveling back and forth from Cumberland to Baltimore.
They are trying to maintain a normal life for their two sons at home.
Holley recently turned 1 and spent her birthday in the hospital.
Many of Holley’s family members reside in the Frostburg/Klondike area. Her uncle Al is a local pharmacist at the Tri-Towns Pharmacy in Westernport.
Mike, Leann and the family reside in Cresaptown.
