A Sami update for those who have asked. She was recently sent by Make a Wish foundation to go meet the princesses at Disney. Needless to say she was thrilled.

So a bit more details about her health. Her heart problem (she was born with) was “fixed” (worked around) via 3 open heart surgeries. She was earlier this year diagnosed with the Pulmonary Vein Stenosis, which was a new thing and required them to undo their last fix on her heart (in a 4th open heart surgery) and she will need a full heart and lung transplant. She and her family recently went to the top Doctors in the country dealing with PVS. They found that the disease is still active in her and she is being put on a trial of Gleevac which they hope will slow the damage of the PVS long enough for her to survive it.

Your prayer and well wishes are always appreciated as is your art or poems or stories or anything else you want want to send her way.

Sami Needs you!

Some of you might remember last year I asked for art for Sami the sweetest little girl who has been though a lot even at the tender age of 3. Right now she needs your help again.

Its going to cost her family around $50,000 to $75,000 dollars a year to keep her alive.

Because the US health care system is messed up. There is so much more I want to say but I am so angry, and hurt, and frustrated right now that all I can really manage is Please, Please if you have even a dollar to spare please consider donating to her carepage.

See This post for the full details on her health and why someone decided her life was worth $75,000 a year.

Sami needs your help!

Right now some of our best friends are in trouble.

Its going to cost $50,000 to $75,000 dollars a year to keep Sami alive, and understandably her parents can not afford that. They are doing everything they can get to whatever they can to pay for as much of the medication they need to keep her alive as possible, including moving away from their friends and family support network to live in a place with a lower cost of living, but they are only able to do so much. You can read all about what has been going on with Sami on her care page. But below the break is a basic summery and a letter from her family.

But I am asking, no begging that you offer your support to help keep this princess alive.
