My Story

Sam was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma the week of his 22nd birthday, while training for an Ironman Triathlon. His strength and wonderful attitude were an inspiration to those around him. Sam completed 14 rounds of chemo and radiation in February of 2008. When he went back for his 6 month check up scans, they found that the cancer returned. Sam passed away on January 14, 2011. We appreciate your support against childhood cancer that has not only affected our family, but those brave families we have met along the way.
