2013 December Hero of the Month

Colby Scott, 4, and Carson Scott, 6

of Bridgewater. Colby was diagnosed in 2013 with severe aplastic anemia and after many transfusions was able to receive a bone marrow transplant. Carson donated his bone marrow thus saving his brother life. Both have become very close and miss each other tremendously when Colby is away for medical appointments.
Over the summer and fall of 2013 Colby spent over 100 days at Tufts New England Medical Center at which time he was only able to see his brother and father every two weeks and missed his first Christmas at home.
Colby and Carson were both nominated for their bravery in the face of adversity by Make A wish Granters Marilyn Carey and Tonya Fitzpatrick and in 2014 Carson was received The Every Day Hero award from the American Red cross. Colby and Carson are the sons of Lisa and Clark Scott. Both boys received $100 on behalf of The Cubby Fund.
