BRADENTON, Fla. — A boy who suffers from a disorder was surprised with a first responder-themed birthday party.

FOX13 reported that Jamie Sprout, 12, was born with a mitochondrial disorder and was supposed to be on a ventilator by the age of 10.

Jamie’s mother, Nicole, said he loves first responders, which is why personnel from several different agencies around the county surprised him at his birthday party.

“He’s just so grateful for everything we do for him, the police department, anyone. He’s just very thankful for life,” Cedar Hammock Fire Rescue firefighter Marc Massella said.

Nicole said she is very thankful for how the first responders have become a part of their family.

“Very loved, they’ve been by our side pretty much since day one when we met them. We need anything, we call them, they’re there,” she said. “The sheriff’s department has been a huge help and inspiration in more ways than one.”

“There’s sheriffs and police here and everything, and I’ve got a table full of presents, so I think that’s pretty cool,” Jamie said.
