My Story

Sam is a delightful boy. He is VERY intelligent and loves to read. He also loves playing outside with his dog Maddie and wrestles. Sam was born in Italy while his father was stationed there as a US Naval helo pilot. Sam is a great big brother for Peter and Mitchell. As a survivor Sam feels it is important to raise money for research.  He has shaved his own head 5 times to raise money for St. Baldrick's.  

You can find his fundraising page at www.stbaldricks.org/participants/siphilips

Throughout all of his treatment Sam kept up his "spirits" and hence the spirits of all those around him! We know that God is keeping a close watch over him, but just in case, put him in your prayers. 

His blog site is www.caringbridge.org/visit/samuelphilips. Thankfully it has been pretty quiet lately.
