May 20th, is my Mother and Father’s anniversary and in 2014 they went on a dream trip with my Cousins; Troy and Sally England, Sara and Steve Williams, and more to Las Vegas, Nevada. My parents left friday the 16th to spend a week in Las Vegas, to celebrate the love and joy they have had over their lifetime together and for what was to become, that all changed drastically within a blink of an eye.
May 18th, 2014- just two days after my Mother and father left- My Brother-in-Law, Collin Spencer, older siblings, Stephanie Spencer and Amyliah Smith, and I were babysitting a pair of twins who our family have been babysitting since the day they came home from the hospital.

They didn’t think I would be able to participate in cheering or any other sporting event. Yet two weeks later I started tumbling again and went to cheer camp after my third week of being free from the hospital. I should not be alive today or be able to do the things that I do today, but because of the power of God and my wonderful doctors at Children 's Mercy along with the faith of all of my family and friends I am able to walk this Earth by myself and control what I do.
