KSDK – The day Brendon Spear was born, he was by all accounts a healthy baby boy. But mom Jessica almost immediately started noticing that a few things seemed off.

Months later, Brendon was diagnosed with having a stroke – months before he was even born. His journey inspired his mom and a mission that's become known as Brendon's Smile.

Jessica Spear joined us on First at Four to share Brendon's story and World Pediatric Stroke Awareness Week. Watch the video above for her conversation with Kay Quinn.
