This Portage Student Waiting For Heart Transplant Will Warm Your Heart – Team Spencer
This brave 16-year-old from Portage is waiting for a heart transplant and his story is truly inspirational.
Spencer Powell is 16 years old and was born with Congenital Heart Disease, and the doctors thought he wouldn't make it one week after he was born. After multiple open heart surgeries throughout his life, he is now waiting for a heart transplant but his positivity is contagious:
Just by looking at Spencer and watching him laugh and joke around and just have fun you wouldn't know he was sick. In his doctors words "his heart isn't keeping up with his spirit." Which is so true, not many people let alone teens have to deal with what he does. And he does it with a smile and a positive attitude. He now says, "this is just the start of something new". GoFundMe
