See that adorable little baby at the top of my right sidebar? ----->

I can't even look at that picture without tearing up. Baby Sam has cancer. Stage 4 neuroblastoma. My heart breaks thinking of him and his family. He's only a week or two younger than Oliver.

The fundraiser at Baby Rabies is amazing and awesome and has met and exceeded goal after goal so far... The current goal of $7500 by June 11th would cover a few months worth of COBRA coverage for Sam. As if they didn't have enough to deal with, they have to worry about insurance?

To read more from Sam's family please click here to visit their blog.

I'd provide a summary of the whole scary, heartbreaking situation... but I'm supposed to be working right now and can't keep my shit together long enough to go into the description.

Let's just say that really, this could be my baby, or your baby or my cousin's baby. But it's Alex & Cassie's baby and he deserves a chance and his parents deserve some breathing room.

  1. Oh, Sara, poor baby Sam. I will pray so hard for him and his family. I hope that he will get well.

    I'm off to add his button to my page too in hopes we can all help the family out. They shouldn't have to worry about money on top of everything else.

  2. This is really heartbreaking. You'll never really know why this is happening and all we could do is pray and extend any help that we can give for this adorable child and his family.

  3. This story is so heartbreaking. I'm so glad to see Jill's fundraiser going so well and all the support she's giving. A few bucks here and there jsut doesn't seem like enough.
