LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Mark Huizenga recently sent a special tribute to Chance Steward in recognition of his recent heroism in the face of a medical emergency at home.
Chance, who is six years old, woke up on Oct. 13 to find his dad suffering from a severe asthma attack while his mom was at work. His dad had lost consciousness, and Chance saved his life by calling the police.
“It is a pleasure and a privilege to honor Chance Steward in recognition of his outstanding courage and bravery,” said Huizenga, R-Walker. “Chance found himself at the center of an extraordinary moment, and he responded with strength and composure well beyond his years. In doing so, he saved his dad’s life. Chance’s story is not just a tale of a child’s heroism; it’s a reflection of the resilience that makes our nation great and the idea that everyone — regardless of age — can make a difference.”
Huizenga’s tribute to Steward says, “In a world often dominated by routine, Chance’s young heart and quick thinking shone brightly on a day that could have been marred by tragedy. It was a day when Chance became a hero to his father, his family, and all of those who have heard his incredible story.”
It also commends and congratulates “Chance Steward on his heroic actions and enduring spirit. His story is a reminder that, even in the face of adversity, the American spirit endures, shining brightly through the actions of citizens who choose to rise to the occasion.”
