Superheroes for Sam: A Photo Project

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: Acture 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.

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.
  4. Put it in an envelope and mail it to:
Sam Sommer, E571
Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
P.O. Box 1997
Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53201-1997 
**Your letters of encouragement and superhero drawings are welcome as well!
