    For 11 years I worked with a very sweet lady. Her two year old grandson is in St. Jude's fighting a brave fight. His specific issue right now is his oxygen levels. They aren't sure what is causing the levels to not level ou. I'm attaching info from a post made by his mom. As you read it, remember that she was very pregnant when they came to St. Jude's. She delivered while Sam was there, and their baby girl is back home. This family has been through a lot. (He's the little man in my avatar and that Diznn's refers to.) the doctors are going through different possibilities, the worst case is that's it's a disease from the chemo. If thTs the case then discussions will begin about quality of life. I cannot even begin to fathom how a mom of a two year old can even have to consider that. So, please, send up prayers for them all. If you want to follow the family and their story, look on Facebook for Praying for Sam #samstrong. You will fall in love with him, so beware.

    FYI... Scans came back all clear. They need finish protocol, but a huge step. Keep them in your prayers. And thanks for the prayers!!!

    I bet his family is over the moon! You have to pray that the good news stays good, and that there is a "new normal" with this news.

    Thank you so very much for sharing the video on this thread. I couldn't help but note the curls in Sam's hair, and how healthy he looks. Hope is, indeed, alive.

    I am bumping this... Sam and family are at St. Jude's for MIBG scans tomorrow at 10. They are asking that you pray for no cancer cells to light up or show up in bone marrow. I am asking for you to pray for his parents as well as they wait for these tests to be performed and for results. Thank you!
