Heartfelt plea for Sam.

Update posted by Sarah Heard On Jun 16, 2014

Sam is flying out to America on the 25th June & will start her treatment!!! I will be going with her & staying for the first two weeks. Someone has to keep her out of trouble!! It is all because of your kind & generous donations that she is able to do this. Her children will also be joining her for 3 weeks!! I would like to thank each & every one of you for making this possible it means so much. 

Thank you all. I will keep you posted. xxxxxx Please continue to support Sam whilst she is in America by sending her messages via Facebook or comments page on here I know she will really appreciate it!! Xx

Just to let you all know Sam underwent a 5 hour operation on the 27th February to reduce the size of her brain tumour. The operation was a success but left Sam in a lot of pain and discomfort. Sam is now at home feeling very battered and bruised and completely worn out. She now has 6-8 weeks to recover before she can travel to America for her Proton Beam Radiation therapy.

We still need to raise more money!

On the 29th March myself and 25 colleagues from Manheim Auctions in Colchester will be taking part in a fancy dress sponsored walk. We will be walking from Walton Pier to Clacton Pier which is approximately 7 miles we have so far raised over £1000!!

Sam's husband Paul is also doing a sponsored bike ride from Hook in Hampshire to Southall Middlesex. He is doing an amazing job raising as much money as possible.

A massive thank you to everybody that has donated, you have helped so much! if anybody has any fundraising ideas please contact me via Facebook.

Thanks again.

My little girl attends Leapfrogs and they organised a fundraising walk in order to support you and your family and we can't make it. I don't know you, however I would like to make a donation as your story could happen to anyone of us and I can't begin to imagine what you and your family are going through. Me and my family wish you well and really hope the money raised helps you and your family to cope a little better with the tough times ahead. Good luck. Xx

I read your article in the local gazette, if it wasnt the gazette i wouldnt have known. All the times the boys (your husband and son) have been into the chippy and never said anything. I always ask hows things, have you settled into your your new home etc.. etc.. Im not at the chippy no more, but my customers meant alot to me and knowing you are going through so much. My donation isnt alot, but its something towards your fund. Will be thinking of you and your family.
