This page is to help fund Spencer and his recovery.
Spenser Reid Grandstaff was involved in a very serious car accident in Lynchburg, VA on 9/10/2017. He had just finished photographing a friend's wedding and was driving when he overcorrected his car causing him to flip his Jeep three times on Rivermont Avenue. He was found by a friend and taken to the hospital soon after. He was pronounced in critical condition shortly after the accident and since has been in the hospital being heavily monitored.
The longer he is in the hospital the larger the bills will be. Currently, Spencer is in need of an ambulatory airplane to transfer him to another facility adding to the already large bills. He will also be unable to finish his semester at VCU or work for an unknown amount of time.
The best way to describe Spencer is larger than life not only in physical size but in personality as well. He has been described by friends as inspiring, optimistic, a growth/ knowledge junkie, open-minded, creative, curious, kind, hilarious, and strong. He sees beauty everywhere in his world shown through his photography and pushes himself and those around him to be the best person that they can be. Absolutely any person within a minute of meeting him will testify to this.
Spenser's recovery will not be easy, nor cheap. There is no telling how much his hospital bills will be, but the least we can do is make it easier for Spenser's family at this intensely difficult time.
Victoria Bridgette King, Spenser's significant other of more than 4 years, has been in Thailand over the past couple of weeks. Due to the kindness of a friend she was able to make it home for a short trip to see Spencer. She is returning soon to continue her studies in Thailand and will return in mid- December.
The term "relationship goals" has never been truer until this union was made between these two amazing individuals. Alone they are both passionate, joyful, hardworking individuals in love with the adventure that is life. Together they express this love to one another and from an outsider perspective, it is apparent that this is a love and commitment that is strong.
Spenser is an incredibly talented photographer and videographer. He has been chasing his dream finding work everywhere he can from making beautiful wedding videos, music videos, and photographing his daily life from friends, family, and wherever he finds himself in the world. Though he is enrolled at Virginia Commonwealth University to further his knowledge, much of his talent is natural and self-taught. This is seen through the images he creates when he slows his steps, takes in the world around him, and sees the importance that can be captured in a snap. We want to help share his work. Soon, we plan to offer prints of his photography to those who donate. We want to give you every incentive to help him.
Spenser is currently being treated at Lynchburg General Hospital. Updates on his condition and recovery status can be found here: https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/spensergrandstaff
