Team Superman Sam Update 6.28.12

  It’s been a little more than a week since we first heard about and shared Superman Sam’s story.  We’ve gotten an overwhelming amount of emails and support from local customers, cosplay groups, and creators in the comics industry. We are especially grateful to Gail Simone, Adam Hughes, and Justin Gray for their participation in spreading the word.  THANK YOU, Everyone!!

  Yesterday we send the first of several care packages to Sam at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.  We were only able to write the personalized messages on about half of the pictures we received and will be sending the rest in waves.

  Sam’s mom posted a quick Q+A about what they do (and don’t) need and what to do if you want to help anyway.  PS- He really loves turtles and frogs!!

  From SupermanSamuel.blogspot.com:

Feel free to contact Am Shalom 847-835-4800 or B’nai Torah 847-433-7100 if you’d like to speak with someone close to the family who can speak on their behalf.

Prayers help too.
Sam’s Hebrew name is Shmuel Asher ben haRav Pesah Esther
Pray in whatever language you know and love. God will understand.

Superheroes For Sam: A Photo Project

**Send your support directly to Sam: Sam Sommer, E571,  Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin,  P.O. Box 1997,  Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53201-1997**

We’d like to introduce you to Sam. We’ve never met Sam, but he is our hero.

     Sam is six years old, loves turtles, hates mint, and has recently been diagnosed with cancer: Actue meyloid lukemia.  He and his family have a long, tough fight ahead as they face weeks at the hospital, pain from cancer, pain from treatment, and physical and emotional exhaustion.  His family has set up a blog, Superman Sam,  to report on his progress and share his adventures with his nurses and new friends in the Hematology/Oncology/Transplant ward.

As a story lover and six year-old boy, Sam loves superheroes. As a six year-old, Sam doesn’t yet grasp the enormity of the world or the healing power we all have and can share with each other. Sam’s parents have created Superheroes for Sam: A Photo Project to help him find the strength he needs and understand how many people care about him.

Sam and his family at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

Help us show Sam how many people are on his team, so he can feel as strong as Superman, as fearless as Daredevil, and as hopeful as a Blue Lantern. Here are a few options how you can help:
  1. Put on your favorite superhero shirt or superhero costume.
  2. Take a picture.
  3. PRINT OUT THE PICTURE.
  4. Put it in an envelope and mail it to:
Sam Sommer, E571

There is something else you can do to help: Send positive energy by visualizing Sam whole. Imagine this silly, sweet, cheeky, fighting kid healed and playing at home.  Imagine him graduating from college, getting married, having kids of his own.  Imagine him living a long, happy, healthy life.  Hold that image in your minds and in your hearts and in your souls.  And pray that it will come to be.

Sarah and Titus show their support!
