Meet Sam.
He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s our hero.
Sam is six years old. He loves turtles, frogs, and comic books, hates mint and popsicles, and he has acute myeloid leukemia.
Cancer is a horrible thing for anyone, but especially so for a story-loving kid like Sam. He has a close-knit family and extended network of friends helping him through the emotional exhaustion and physical pain that comes along with cancer and it’s treatment, but being six, his grasp of the extended community rallying around him is a loose one.
That’s why his mother started  Superheroes for Sam: A Photo Project. She wants all of us to send Sam pictures of ourselves in superhero t-shirts to show him undisputed proof of the huge online community wishing him strength.
Help us show Sam how many people are on his team. He needs to feel the love of the geeky community. We need to show him that he can be as strong as Superman, as resilient as Batman and as brilliant as Professor X.
Here’s what you have to do:
Take a photograph of yourself wearing your favorite superhero shirt, holding up your favorite action figure or comic, doing your best Stan Lee hero pose, or just smiling. Print out the picture. Put it in an envelope and mail it to Sam, here:
Sam Sommer, E571 Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin P.O. Box 1997 Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53201-1997
Sam’s mom will hang our pictures on his wall, and we’ll all become a part of team Superhero Sam.
Let’s do this.
