Sammy's Squad: Care Packages


Thank you for taking the time to read this.  Most of you know me, but for those that don't, my name is Elena Strong.  My husband Steve and I lost our first child, our daughter Samantha Beatrice (Sammy B) at 35W, due to a blood clot in her umbillical cord.  We got to say hello and goodbye to her on 9.19.16. 

As her first birthday/angelversary approaches, we want to be able to honor her, and touch the lives of others, because she has so greatly touched ours.  We are collecting funds to make care packages for stillborn parents around Metro Detroit!  We are hoping to deliver these packages September 17th-19th, in her honor.  

We have set this go fund me up, as many have asked us how they can help honor our Sammy for her first birthday! 

If you would like to send a check please send it to:

3747 Honors Way
Howell, MI 48843

We are asking that we receive all donations by Friday, September 1st, so we have ample time to order materials etc, so we can have these packages completed in time for Sammy's birthday!
