Support Spencer Norton's Heart Surgery

My longtime and dearest friends, the Norton Family, are in need of support. They just learned that their little angel, 10 WEEK old Spencer, is in need of immediate heart surgery. He has a congenital heart defect called VSD, or Ventricular Septal Defect. In plain English he has a hole in his little heart. He is also having additional complications that make him even more medically fragile.


Amy, Mom, is a teacher in the Marysville school district who has dedicated her career to helping developmentally challenged children. Scott, Dad, works for Metro serving the community and also recently worked very hard to graduate from University of Washington. They have a beautiful daughter, Olivia, who is a ray of sunshine and a great friend to my daughter.


As you can imagine heart surgery is not cheap! They have insurance but there are still extreme costs they will face in the future related to this and I want to do all I can to support them with this! THEY DID NOT ASK ME TO DO THIS, but the kindness they have showed me over 11 years of friendship is motivation enough. They are both at the hospital continuously by Spencer's side, which means time off work. Time off work means no income. You do the math when it comes to paying a mortgage, medical bills, and family related incidentals.


I know its popular to create these sites to raise money for travel and pets(all worthy causes!!) but this cause is far beyond vacation aspirations or Fido. This is their beautiful baby, a HUGE part of their young family. Even if you can give $1 to help them pay for Spencer and related expenses it would be wonderful and soooo appreciated! Take my word that they are a deserving family who is dedicated to our community and their friends. In my humble opinion they deserve all the support we can offer, as they would do the same for you.


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Even If you can only afford a simple prayer- they will take those too!
