Jrue Holiday to miss start of season as pregnant wife Lauren Holiday faces brain surgery | NOLA.comFew things in life are scarier than learning you have a brain tumor. When the news comes only months before the birth of your first child, well, it can be almost incomprehensible, especially for a world-class athlete.
This was the situation that confronted Lauren and Jrue Holiday in late June, when New Orleans doctors discovered a tumor on the right side of Lauren's brain.
The diagnosis was a gut punch for a young couple not accustomed to health problems.
Lauren Holiday, 28, a two-time Olympic gold medalist for the U.S. women's national soccer team, retired last year in the prime of her career, in large part, to start a family with her husband Jrue, the starting point guard for the New Orleans Pelicans. The family plans did not include brain surgery.
