A couple of weeks ago my pal Beth told me about a little boy named Superman Sam: he’s 6 years old and currently fighting AML, otherwise known as Acute Myeloid Leukemia. AML also happens to be the same kind of Leukemia I had at 19. Before she was finished, I was ready to help.
So how am I planning to help? Well it turns out that Superman Sam’s mom is on a mission. Here’s an excerpt from her blog:
"If you want to help me show Sam how many people are on his team, so he can feel the love:
Take a photograph of yourself wearing your favorite superhero shirt
(or holding up their logo…or just smiling!)
Print out the picture.
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
We will hang all the pictures on Sam’s wall…Team Superman Sam!"
Well, of course I was ready to pass it on and I agreed to ask my clients to don a cape for the cause during their sessions. But deep down I wanted to do more.
So, how can we get a bunch of people in the same place to get their photos snapped in superhero attire for Sam? Easy! We’ll throw a party! And guess what? You’re invited!
Join us this Friday at Little Beans Cafe for all the fun…
