I was introduced to Sam from Ariana (aka becoming-mom) and as soon as I saw him I was drawn in. I am not sure why...maybe because his infectious smile reminds me so much of Cooper or it could be his little bit of hair styled up into a little faux hawk like I do to Coopers. Whatever it is - I can't stop thinking about him and his family. You see...Sam was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma. The cure rate for Sam's cancer 30%. Sam is in for 6 rounds of Chemo, surgeries, possible radiation and two stem cell transplants. He has had a central line placed which has been giving him nothing but trouble. Talk aout Just.Not.Fair.
Even though Sam and his family live 100's of miles away near Louisville, Ky and Even Though I have never met them my heart aches.
I have decided there is in fact a club we join once we become Mom's. No matter who, what or where we have a bond with other Mom's. We cry, cheer, laugh and celebrate with other Mom's. And thanks to the wonders of the Internet and social media we have never even met these Mom's.
So if you get a chance check out Sam's moms blog: The Sartins. It is in my blog list. You can also click on the button on the right side of my blog to donate to Sam. And please, please, please PRAY for Sam.
