Independence supports high school student getting heart surgery

Posted: Updated:

Independence high school student Alex Coberly was born with a bicuspid aortic valve. It's a heart disease that he's lived with his whole life. 

He will be having valve replacement surgery in Houston, TX later this spring. 

This weekend, more than $5,000 was raised for his surgery at a pasta bar fundraiser in Independence. 

His family and friends say they are still accepting donations through his church and there is a GoFundMe page. People can also send checks to Hope Wesleyan Church with Alex Fundraiser in the memo line.
