Each win by Wells High wrestlers goes to help kids with rare disease
One child who may benefit from pledged donations is 3-year-old Spencer Smith, a former wrestler's son who has an illness often referred to as childhood Alzheimer's.

The wrestlers at Wells High School don’t know Nate Smith or his 3-year-old son Spencer well, but they still think of them as family.

They know Nate Smith wrestled at Wells a generation ago and that Spencer needs their help.

“It’s really all about knowing that he’s a former wrestler and the bond that you make when you’re wrestling,” said Wells senior Sean McCormack-Kuhman. “You look out for each other. They obviously needed help and we thought it would be a great thing to support them.”

The Wells wrestling team has been raising money this season in honor of Spencer Smith, who has been diagnosed with a rare, incurable neurological disease known as Sanfilippo syndrome. Sanfilippo is often referred to as childhood Alzheimer’s disease because it causes cognitive regression, loss of skills such as talking and walking, and eventually death, according to the Cure Sanfilippo Foundation website. Life expectancy is roughly 15 years.
