The family & friends of Spencer are uniting together to raise funds for medical expenses & medical equipment.

Spencer was born with a rare eye disease that developed when he was 1 yrs old, called Coat's Disease. At age 1 1/2 he went permanently blind in his right eye. From all of his surgeries trying to save what vision he had in his right eye, he developed secondary glaucoma. 6 month's later, at age 2, he was diagnosed with another eye disease called Sympathetic Opthalmia. His left eye is compensating for his right eye. From the age of 2 to 4 he underwent several surgeries; they removal his right eye, he now wears a prosthetic, for the Glaucoma treatments, Uveitus, inflammation in his eye, & to remove the cataract. Also, since the age of 2, he has been visiting the infusion center to supress his immune system, his own body has been fighting against him. I am pleased to report that he now goes every 10 wks instead of every 4 wks. Spencer has been improving since the start of his disease, but unfortunately his cornea got cloudy & he needed a corneal transplant. His transplant was on August 2, 2011 & has been a great success so far. I am truly blessed & grateful for his Dr's. Spencer has a vision teacher that works with him weekly & a mobility teacher that works with him as well. He's truly an amazing kid.
Thank you for all your donations & support.

Thank you all so much - The Parod family
