Hi there! I‘m Samantha‘s Mommy. My daughter, Samantha, was diagnosed On Dec 20, 2015 with a very rare form of an adult Leukemia when she was only 9 years old. We were flown from Guam to UCLA and spent 14 months battling this deadly disease. She lost her battle on Feb 10, 2017. She was only 11 years old. Many days I didn’t know what I was going to do to move on after losing her. Over time, I found ways of honoring her life, her heroic battle , and her courage through various charitable events. The Malibu Triathlon is one of them. Please join me in helping other children battling cancer by giving them a chance. Please help me to continue to bring awareness to pediatric cancer. Thank you.
