Sam Bledsaw's Cancer Journey

Sam "Butch" Bledsaw was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia that attacks the blood and bone marrow on February 20, 2018.  He began chemo treatments on February 23rd and will be in the hospital for an extended period of time due to the cancer.  Sam is a bus aide in the Warrensburg-Latham School District and will be unable to work.  He formerly worked at Tate and Lyle (formerly Staleys) in Decatur, IL.

His son, Logan, is a senior in high school and plays baseball.  He is preparing to attend college next fall to play baseball.  

Due to Sam being in the hospital for an unknown period, he is going to be unable to work.  In addition, his wife, Amy, and son are having to drive to visit him and Amy will have to take time off work for doctor's appointments and other reasons.

Any funds raised will be used to help offset medical, food, and traveling expenses for Sam, Amy, and Logan.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

This was created by the families of Sam and Amy Bledsaw (Hogan).
