About Holden

Holden Stewart is a vibrant and inspiring young boy from Brandon, Manitoba, who faces life with a rare genetic disorder known as Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T). Diagnosed in the fall of 2021, Holden's journey has been one of courage and resilience, touching all who know him.


As Holden approached 2 years old, subtle signs began to suggest that something was amiss. After a series of (often painful) evaluations, the diagnosis of A-T was confirmed. This moment was both sobering and clarifying, marking the beginning of a new chapter for Holden and his family.

Living with A-T

Ataxia Telangiectasia affects various aspects of Holden’s health, including his mobility and speech. Despite these challenges, Holden approaches each day with an infectious optimism and an unyielding spirit. His ability to adapt and find joy in the face of adversity is nothing short of inspirational.

Holden continues to take part in many of the activities that you would expect of a 5 year old boy, playing pranks on his siblings, joking around, swimming and playing all kinds of games.

Family and Community

The support from Holden’s family—his parents Derrick and Jill, along with extended family and friends—has been pivotal. They advocate tirelessly not only for Holden but for all families navigating the complexities of A-T. The Brandon community has also rallied around Holden, embracing him with love and support.

A Message from Holden

"Beat Disease," Holden often says with a smile. His resilience serves as a beacon of hope and strength to everyone he meets.

Join the Journey

The Hope for Holden event is more than just a fundraiser—it's a movement of hope and solidarity. By participating, you are joining Holden and countless others in the fight against Ataxia Telangiectasia, paving the way for a brighter, healthier future.
