On a Tuesday in May of 2013, all of our lives changed when they delivered the news: Samantha had Pre-cursor B-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia - or A.L.L. Everything began to move at break-neck speed --meetings with Doctors and Social Workers and Nurses and Child Life and More Doctors. Samantha has been amazing through the process. She has a strong spirit, and the work ethic and perseverance that she has learned in school and sports over the years will serve her well during this battle. She has a strong faith and belief in God and knows there is a greater purpose. She is amazing!! It’s been a long road since that first day. Dozens of scans, tests, lumbar punctures, bone marrow biopsies, chemotherapy, pills and more pills, daily shots in the abdomen, two major blood clots, a pulmonary embolism, a seizure and a stroke, lung collapses, ICU stays, neuropathy which took away her ability to walk without assistance, bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and the inability to go to school her entire Freshman year of High School with her friends.  Throughout it all, Samantha still maintains a positive spirit and attitude. She looks for the blessings that come from this journey instead of the pain. Samantha still has many months left of treatment. It’s been a long road, but her “can do” spirit will get us all through...it is also through the help of Organizations like St. Baldrick's that help make this journey a little easier and that helps raise badly needed funds childhood cancer awareness. Please support the cause today in anyway that you can. Just spread the word, donate your time, or raise funds while shaving your head.  It's only hair.  It grows back.  It really is insignificant in the Grand Scheme of things.  And compared to what kids like Samantha go through while fighting for their lives, it is an amazing gesture and support!!  GO BALD TODAY!
