Spencer Meyer is a 7 year old from Hudsonville who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2010. He overcame many obstacles and was doing well. As far as the family knew, Spencer was on the path of remission. In February of 2012, after a year and a half in remission, Spencer relapsed and the cancer was found in his spine. In March 2012 Spencer started an intense three year chemotherapy regiment. Current road blocks in his treatment have included pancreatitis, brain swelling, epilepsy, and intense emotional issues.
Spencer enjoys puzzles and is a big Star Wars fan. He has an older sister Mikayla, who attends Georgetown Elementary, 9, younger brother Vincent 5, who attends Bauer Elementary, younger sister Tiffany 3, and a baby sister Quinnly. Spencer’s parents, Jason & Jodi, are both teachers at Hudsonville High School.
