My Story

Hi, this is Samuel and he is a sweet, goofy 3 year old boy.  His smile is absolutely contagious! Samuel was diagnosed with VHR B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on August 6, 2019, just 1 week before his family was going to take their first trip to Disney World.  Samuel has a 19 month old little brother, Luke, and parents, Joe and Dawn, that love him so incredibly much.  Samuel loves trucks and cars.  He is now adjusting to his new normal away from his school friends.  His family appreciates all the love, support, thoughts, and prayers! Samuel Strong!
