Spencer August 2012
Spencer was born with multi-cystic kidney disease with only one partially functioning kidney. He was not expected to live but proved to be a miracle to the joy of his family and friends. He has tried to lead a normal life despite the slow decline in the function of his existing kidney. Up to last year he played high school sports until he became too tired and often times just too sick. He attends Chattahoochee High as a senior and is an excellent student despite the fact that often he cannot make it to school because of illness and has now been put on a special program allowing him to go for reduced hours.
Spencer is a very bright young man and wants to attend college next fall. At a time when he should be going to proms and planning for college he instead is dealing with getting a kidney transplant. His kidney function has now reached the critical point and he will be going to Piedmont Hospital in the near future to have the transplant that will change his life. His mother has been chosen as the best match and she has bravely and lovingly taken on the task. As you know the transplant and anti-rejection drugs that he will have to take are very expensive and insurance will not cover it all. Spencer and his family appreciate your support, prayers and donations during this very difficult time in his life. We will be updating this site periodically to let you know how everything is going with Spencer.
