For Samantha: Soon to be mom diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 21.

I met Samantha a couple years ago when we worked together for a short time here in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I always remembered her by the smile on her face which remarkably is still there. Thanks to social networking, I've been able to stay informed with most friends even when communication is difficult. I received an invite to a benefit for Samantha by her friend Heather Lyons that began like this: "Please support my friend Samantha and her unborn son. Samantha found out she is pregnant in July and she was diagnosed September 23rd with Hodgkins Lymphoma at just 21 years old. She has started her chemotherapy treatment. We are raising money for her medical bills and to save her son's cord blood. The stem cells in the cord blood could possibly save Sams life down the road and help her child if needed."

I know times are tough for all of us, however, If we all could contribute what we spend on a cup of coffee in a week it would help Samantha and her baby be one step closer to health. What better time of year to make a difference! :)
