On 11/02/17 a very dear family friend, the Dube family (Holly-mom, Ally-sister, and Samatha) was given devistating news. Samantha age 12, a sixth grade student from Oakham MA was diagnosed with Leukemia after a routine doctors visit for nose bleeds & bruising . Unfortunately, this is the second major blow this family has had to endure. Tom, Hollys husband and Sammy and Allys dad suddenly passed away a little over 3 years ago. This left Holly raising Samantha and Ally on her own.
On 11/02/17, Samantha was immediately admitted at UMASS Medical Center to begin the battle of her life. Samantha will be spending the next 1-2 weeks in the hospital and recieving chemotherapy. Holly was advised that the Samantha will need to make weekly trips to the hospital for the next TWO years to fight this horrible disease.
As you can imagine, Holly will endure substantial financial hardship over the next two years, including co-payments, parking & travel costs, and the need to choose between work to provide for her family and transporting , caring for, and remaining with Samantha for medical procedures.
Samantha is truely one of the kindess girls you will ever
meet. She is full of energy and spunk, loves soccer GO #FCSTARS, & loves her family &friends. Sammy is like a second daughter to me, my heart aches. Please pass this on on and help this very deserving family.
