Sammy's Medical Fund
I am starting this fund to help with medical bills for Sammy Peede and ask all of my friends and contacts to at least share this to spread the word.
I have known Sammy since he was born at his home and he is a fine young man from a fine family that I am grateful to call my friends.
Sammy was born May 2, 1995 and was a Star Level Boy Scout, he attended Palm Beach Central High where he was all district lacrosse player and graduated in 2014. He later attended PBSC for 18 months and earned his diesel mechanic cert.
He moved to St. Pete and got a good job. One year ago 9-9-15 he had a baby boy named Mason.
About 2 weeks ago after knee pain he was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, an agressive type of childhood cancer, inoperable at this time. He cannot put any weight on his leg and obviously cannot work. His treatment plan is for approx. 10 months of Chemo and radiation in Miami with hopes of future surgery, this cancer has now spread to his lungs as I write this. I would ask for any help you can provide including prayers. Thank you
Thank you all again for your continued support, shares, donations and prayers for Sammy's health and well being. He is 5 weeks post surgery of the tumor resection and doing amazingly well. Although the titanium rods and total knee replacements have been a challenge, he has never given up hope of walking and playing with his son Mason again. We are now back in Miami for the continued chemotherapy treatments and radiation which will last for the next 4 months. After meeting with his oncologist yesterday, we found out some not so good news. The pathology of the tumor was only 35% dead and 65% alive, not the best outcome, but the margins were clear on the remaining bone, which is good. Stupid cancer! The oncology team here at Miami are diligently working on immunotherapy trials for sarcomas like Sammy's , but unfortunately they are to late for his treatment. We are hopeful though that if something grows back, there will be new less invasive procedures available. And so the journey continues. We are staying family strong for Sammy and living life for the joy of each day we have with him. I am so grateful for the opportunity to thank you all for your generosity and caring you have shown to my son.
Thank you all for your continued prayers, support, and donations! Please continue to share this page. Sammy has 1 last round of chemo before he has his surgery! He was suppose to start this treatment on Wednesday, and hopefully still will if all his blood work comes back normal by then! This round is 6 days long and then he's done for now. He then has his surgery (in January hopefully) and another set of chemo treatments after. Still a long road ahead! Thanks again everyone!
Good morning, We are once again in Miami waiting to start the second two week chemo treatment. There are six of these before the surgery and six treatments after, plus six weeks of radiation. So far Sammy has been tolerating the chemo drugs well and has been in good spirits. We are fortunate to be able to leave the hospital between treatments, as I believe that is his saving grace to be able to be home with family and his little boy Mason. Thank you for all your support, prayers, shares and donations. We will be forever grateful for the kindness of all the people involved in this journey into cancer........
Thank you all again for the continued support, prayers, shares, and donations. Tomorrow Sammy and Terri head back down to Miami to start his 2nd week of chemo. He will be there for 5-6 days this time. Will keep commenting with updates as things give.
Sammy went to Miami this morning to start his week 1 of chemo. Thank you all for the prayers, support, shares, and donations! Y'all are awesome!!
