Support for Samantha Branson

$16,005 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 226 people in 5 months
Created April 24, 2018
Samantha Branson was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer on March 27th, 2018 after months of mysterious pain. With tumors on her pancreas, kidney, and lung, she is currently enduring the pains of intensive chemo. As medical bills come pouring in, we want to take some stress off of her plate. Samantha is a teacher at Saint James Academy in Lenexa, Kansas. She is a mother to Garrett (who is about to graduate high school)and Claire who is a freshman. With her husband Greg, they reside in Osawatomie, Kansas.

She gives everything she has to others and is a brilliant English teacher. What really makes her happy is seeing other people happy. Her goal is to bring happiness to her students each day (while also making them great writers!) 

You may know her from Garrett's many concerts or guitar lessons. You may know her from Claire's cheer practices or from the extra hours she puts in to making her students' learn. She is a true servant to Christ. Unassuming and humble, Samantha works diligently, never expecting recognition. Samantha feels very connected to her faith and the community at Saint James Academy. Whether you know her or not, please pray for her and consider offering a donation.

In less than 24 hours, we have raised over $4,000. That's what love can do. Please consider donating. Even a small donation is appreciated. For those of you who feel like there are less and less good people in this world, Samantha Branson would reinvigorate your hope in humanity. She has her students fill out a post-it note and decorate it with something that makes them happy and add it to her wall of happiness. Her entire room is covered in post-it notes. She had to leave abruptly from teaching 3 weeks ago. One of her messages to her students when sharing her diagnosis was to keep adding to the Wall of Happiness even though she is not there. Whether you can donate or not, please spread happiness.
