Sammy Parker's Benefit Page
The friends of Dan & Heather Parker request your generous donations to make their son Sam's wishes come true. Sammy is 11 years old and is fighting a rare form of cancer, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors. This has been a lifelong fight, which unfortunately has recently returned at an advanced stage. Dan and Heather are focused on making certain Sammy gets to enjoy life as much as possible. All funds raised will go toward that pursuit. The biggest event we are shooting for is to get Sam to the London Olympics.
There will be a fundraising event at Whitlow's On Wilson in Arlington, VA on July 25, 2012 at 8:00pm. The evening will feature rock-n-roll by some of Dan's former bandmates and other local talent, Silent Auction and good friends.
Come on out for an important cause. If you cannot make it, your donations for this fund are greatly appreciated.
Let's help Sam achieve his biggest dreams!

To our incredible friends,
It is impossible to find the words to adequately convey our gratitude to you all. The kindness and generosity that you have all showed to Sammy and our family is just beyond words. The memories that Sammy will make on his trip will get him through some challenging times. And that is a gift that is just too big to imagine.
As parents of a child in this position, it is very easy to feel completely alone. It's easy to slip away from your friends and family and engineer a world that is small and numb. But then your friends show up, pull you out and show you who they are and that you are not alone.
It would be hard for our family to consider ourselves lucky. But what you all have done, through this amazing gesture, has accomplished exactly that. We feel so lucky to have you all in our lives and would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you all so much,
