I have been thinking about your family and your precious Sammie today. I just want you to know that she will not be forgotten by me ever. My son Evan continues to live with no evidence of disease. He is now sixteen. I think about how Sammie should be here, getting ready to apply to colleges, etc. as I am sure you do. I will continue to try to spread awareness and to promote funding going to childhood cancers until a cure is found. I will do this to honor that precious girl of yours. Her spirit is imbedded in my soul. She had quite an impact on so many in her short little life. I don't know if you have noticed how much more media has been a part of children's cancer journey's these days, but I like to thank Sammie as being one of the first to capture the public's hearts. Her livestrong page, and her fighting spirit touched so many people. Your raw and honest posts paved the way for people to reach out for support and to tell the ugly truth about losing a child to cancer. I hope your family continues to heal together and that you all know how much the world loved and cared about all of you and your girl. We still do.
