One month from today, on January 16, 2017, Sammy will turn 6. Six years old! We are so excited to get to celebrate Sammy turning 6!
Last year Sammy spent his birthday in the hospital, as he spent 2/3rds of the year in the hospital. While we tried to make his birthday something awesome, it was a bit difficult to do while isolated in a hospital room. We were beyond blessed by the out pouring of birthday cards mailed to Sammy, showing our family that we are far from alone in Sammy's fight. And absolutely made Sammy smile. He loves getting mail. With Sammy turning 6, we want to do something amazing to honor him and begin to build a legacy in his honor. This will likely be Sammy's last birthday with us, meaning he will likely be forever six years old. We hope for his miracle, but we are preparing for this to be our last with him.
In our military and law enforcement family, the number six is used as a code word. "Got your six." Meaning got your back. I am watching out for you, protecting you, covering you. In our journey we have very much felt our backside being covered, we have been provided for in so many ways, and know we are always covered in prayer. Many have our 6. Sammy's 6.
We want Sammy's birthday to be a way to pay it forward, this year and every year. We want Sammy to be able to stand behind at least 6 families that are fighting this fight, a child fighting childhood cancer. We want to shower these 6 families (more if we are able) with gift cards that will help ease their burden during their child's battle with cancer, so that they can focus on what matters most. Their child.
We would be honored if for Sammy's birthday, you would send him a gift card to pay-it-forward. These can be to grocery stores, gas stations, shops, entertainment, restaurants, amazon, or cash gift cards. Cards can be for as little as $5 or for as much as you are willing. We hope you will have Sammy's 6, for his 6th birthday.
Please mail birthday cards for Sammy's Got Your Six celebration to Super Sammy, 1934 E Camelback Rd #120-239, Phoenix, AZ 85016.
