Sam Biggs of Alton is an amazing five year old who is battling through each day with such a positive outlook on everything.
On Saturday, March 22nd, after complaining of stomach pain, Sam was rushed to the ER. He was then transferred to St. Louis Children's Hospital where test results were devastating. Sam has a large tumor on his liver and masses on his lungs. Sam was diagnosed with Stage IV Pediatriac Hepatoblastoma, a very rare childhood liver cancer tht affects newborn to 5 year olds. Sam is currently enduring 18 weeks of chemotherapy to shrink the tumor so that it can be surgically removed. Sam is a ray of light with a huge personality. He is so loving and caring with such an innocent soul. Sam is a fighter and and very strong little boy. He has a huge Army of support behind him, but in this devastating time his biggest supporters, his Mom and Dad, Lee Ann and Brian Biggs - need our help.
We have rallied the troops and formed SAM'S SOLDIERS to organize a benefit to help ease some of their financial burden. The benefit will include four live bands, who have graciously donated their time: Diamond Cut Blues Band; Marked in Stone; The Outsider; and Borderline. There will be a LIVE auction, silent auctions, many raffles, food, drinks, bake sale, Corn Hole tournament, and plenty of kid activities in the Kid Zone are. Tickets are $25 per person and $5 for kids (5 and under are free).
Anyone who would like to donate items for the benefit is asked to call Stephanie Zimmerman at 314-494-7555 or Vickie Miller at 618-467-8833. All donations will be acknowledged at the benefit and will be a prominent note in our program. All proceeds from this event will go to the "Sam Biggs Benefit Fund" at Liberty Bank, Alton, IL or by mail: 4260 Titchenal Rd, Brighton IL 62012.
