Sam’s Story

I received a bone marrow transplant for a rare immune system disorder called Omenn Syndrome on June 30th, 2008.  The first transplant didn't work so I had a second transplant in July or 2009.  I just passed the one year mark for the second transplant and everything is looking good.

I know many of you may be thinking isn't Sam's birthday in May? Yes it is, but on Monday we celebrated Sam's 5th birthday since his second BMT!  A big thank you to everyone who has kept Sam in their prayers all this time. He is our little miracle!
