Rising Star: Brooklyn Hillenbrand
It started when she was only two years old.
Marymount University soccer player Brooke Hillenbrand was born with a heart defect. A small hole in her heart did not close.
Adversity might be Brooke's middle name.
She also had three knee surgeries over the course of four years. Her last knee injury almost ended her playing career.
ABC7 sports reporter Scott Abraham shows us how Brooke has recovered and is now making an impact on the Saints program.
