Sam is a very special 7 year old. After receiving regular 4yr old shots and a flu shot, a fever set in and continuned on for some days after seeing the doctor twice, on the third time he was admitted into the hospital for a bone marrow test. He was diagnosed in November 2011 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)and he started chemo Friday Morning November, 11,2011. His port was also inserted below his collar bone in November. Sam has had about a handful of blood transfusions in the past 3 years. From losing all his hair, losing and gaining weight constantly, having numerous spinal taps, going through the difficult challenge of learning and taking chemo pills every night (that was a hard battle), being told that he cant go outside to play, go to school, eat fast food when his counts are down, the list goes on but through it all Sam has been an inspiration to all of us.In 2012 a local artist Morgan Webb, painted Sam in a mural in the new remodeled wing in outpatient at Memorial hospital. When he went to outpatient for his blood work he was surprised to see his self painted in the mural. WOW what an amazing feeling that was that brought us all to tears. In 2013 Sam was named with the title "Boy of the year" for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Savannah, Ga. He went to numerous events to inspire the candidates & their supporters to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We were so overjoyed to see how much an inspiration Sam was to our community. It is now August of 2014, Sam is still going through treatment with chemo pills nightly and monthly check ups with spinal taps and chemo. He has never once stopped being our little hero.
As you know medical bills alone are expensive. But now Sam's parents have only one income coming in. With all the spinal taps, port checks, insurance & chemo pills Sam has to take nightly, it gets expensive. Please help donate towards the Fight for Sam. Fight like a kid. Anything & everything helps
