My Story

For 5 years Samantha fought the cancer. In January the cancer ultimately won the body but not the person. Sam fought everyday with everything she had. Most days she had a smile on her face hiding the battle going on within. Her smile made us forget her pain and had a way of healing us. Those of us honored to have known Sam are better for her being in our life. While we are still crying about our loss we are remembering to smile. So today and every day, share a little bit of Sam with everyone. Smile at them and make their day a little better.
