Sam Schlang

Sam is an awesome human.

Check out his novel, AntruA, (

After 4 years with glioblastoma (Stage 4 brain cancer) Sam is now under the care of Hospice. He is comfortable and at home. There are many ways to send love and support to him during this final period of his life.

Dollar raised here will go towards keeping Sam happy at the end of his life. This includes his continued comfort at home and indulgences in anything that puts a smile on his face (chocolate, flying family out, warm blankets, etc).  

This includes rides to radiation, a neat-o shower chair, renting Sam's favorate TV shows and movies, weed, and anything else his heart desires or care dictates. These funds will also support his family in caring for and, ultimately, memorializing him. These $$$ will cover multiple memorial events. This money is not going towards paid caregiving. Sam's parents and grandparents are generously covering the cost of professional caregivers.

Miriam, his wife, is running this gofundme campaign
from Sam and her home in San Francisco.  She is his primary caregiver.  Donated funds go into a joint account which both Sam and Miriam can access for the above listed activities, as needed.
