After sending some Mouthman shirts to this family last year, one of our customers emailed an update today... it wasn't good news.
I'd like to share a bit of Sam's story here with you-- there is a link to click to visit his families blog to share your own thoughts and personal support.

In June of 2012, 6 yr old Sam Sommer was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
On August 27, 2013 he received a bone marrow transplant.
Sam's Hebrew name is Shmuel Asher ben haRav Pesah Esther
Pray in whatever language you know and love. God will understand." Sam's mother, Phyliss Sommer
On November 13, 2013 , Sam's family announced that the cancer had returned.
His mothers words:
"Sam has relapsed.
His ninja leukemia is so very strong.
It has reared its head in his bone marrow and in some extramedullary spots on his jaw and head.
There is no cure.
There is no treatment."
"Time is all we have. You may find one day that you have less than you think." ~ Randy Pausch
As Sam and his family teach us lessons of hope, grace, generosity, positivity, humor, and feverishly, fiercely embracing today, (nee- the essence of every moment!! ), please join us as in sharing our positive thoughts and prayers for them . I wish we could do so much more than send a few shirts to make them smile.
May we all wish them all the comfort and togetherness that they can possibly be blessed with on this his final journey--
