There are glasses called EnChroma glasses that help color-blind people see colors. They are pretty expensive, running around $300-400. Spencer’s friends told the fire department about their plan to purchase these glasses and all of the guys chipped in. In addition, his friends made him take color-blind tests in the meantime.

On July 4th, Spencer’s friends and fire department surprised him with the glasses! The first thing he wanted to see was an American flag. They made sure to take him outside, so he would see the flag as soon as he put on the glasses.

According to Inside Edition, Spencer’s friend Jordan said, “I didn’t know how to explain why we had a 6-foot-by-10-foot American flag hanging off the side of the engine. I was like, ‘This is your first Fourth of July at the station. We’re having a big breakfast, that’s just what we do at the firehouse.’ Neither of us are emotional people at all and we both cried.”

His firefighter friends even got him a coloring book and colored pencils so he can learn the colors. How sweet is that?
