Hello! I am a friend of Sam's mom. Samantha was diagnosed with a rare form of adult Leukemia when she was 9 years. She lost her battle againsts this terrible disease at age 11 after fighting a hard fight to beat it. Her mother is a good friend who is making every effort to stay positive and finding ways to support her memory and the brave efforts Sam faced against her battle with cancer. One way she's doing that is by supporting charitabe events such as the Malibu Triathlon. Please help us with continuing to bring awareness to pediatric cancer.
