Team Samantha

1st, I want to say Thank You to all of those who have sent gifts, said prayers, sent positive thoughts, and reached out to support me and my family. I am forever grateful for an amazing family and awesome friends!

2nd, I'd like to say that it was not my idea to do the gofundme thing. It's not really my style to ask people for things. But I realize that many people want to help out and this is one way they can do that.

As far as my story...well, its kind of complicated. In early May 2017, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I won't bore you with all the details, but it turns out that it's cancer. I am now receiving treatment at Saint Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis TN. There are still many things about my diagnosis that are unknown. I do know that I will be here at Saint Jude for quite a while. I will need treatment and possibly surgery. It's still kind of early for us to know exactly what happens next and when. Most things are up in the air, and things seem to change daily.

While we appreciate the kindness of everyone, please don't feel obligated to donate. Also, if you prefer, you can donate directly to Saint Jude on their website here Any unused funds we receive will be donated to Saint Jude.

Thank You for keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers!
