When my 15 month old grandson was diagnosed with kidney cancer, we were connected to the fabulous people at Sammy’s Superhero’s Foundation. When we got home from the hospital, there was a packet of information waiting for my daughter and son-in-law. The support and advice the families with Sammy’s Superhero’s have given to my daughter and son-in-law was priceless. Thank you for being there in the darkest hour of our life!

My son Matthew was diagnosed with pre-leukemia last year and received a Binkeez blanket sponsored by Sammy's Superheroes before he even went in for treatment. He loves his blanket and it has been a source of comfort for him. I cannot begin to express how incredible this organization is. Not only are they fighting for their own son but they are fighting for all of our children. We love Sammy's Superheroes!

Sammy's Superheros is one of the truest missions out there! While fighting Sammy's own fight and praying for his miracle, this amazing mother and her team of rockstar volunteers are raising money to fund research for all types of pediatric cancer research. I am honored and privileged to call Erin my friend. I don't remember when exactly we met, in the fall of 2012, for weeks we were next door to each other in separate hospital rooms with our young sons who are both battling pediatric cancers. Sammy's Superheros knows better than anyone how crucial research funding is.....without funding; there is no research.....without research; there is no cure. And no child should ever have to go thru the harsh medicines that these kids are subjected to. Research teams are so dedicated to finding cures for these fighters, and since a very small fraction of cancer research funding is actually dedicated for pediatric cancer research; it has become Sammy's Superheros mission to raise money to support research efforts for all types of pediatric cancer research.

My son, Sammy, was the inspiration behind the Sammy's Superheroes foundation. Our mission is to raise awareness for all types of childhood cancer and to fund promising life-saving research aimed at finding cures. I am imensely proud of the work this foundation is doing. The founders of this organization will work tirelessly to ensure that our mission is always our driving force.

We met Sammy Nahorny and his mother, Erin, during a trip to Children's Hospital Omaha, where we delivered "cheer-up" boxes called Cheeriodicals to all the children. During a personal visit to his room, we were able to speak with Sammy and get a feel for this young boy's strength, determination and especially experience his unforgettable smile.

As a follow-up to that meeting, Omaha Magazine published an article sharing some of the details of Sammy's fight and the impact that Sammy's Superheroes (the non-profit his mother founded) was making on research for Neuroblastoma. We then became more aware of that impact, followed the progress made by this organization. We have been amazed by the great work, the money raised, the reach Sammy Superheroes has made over the last year. We find it so remarkable that a family can get so much accomplished for all children fighting this dreadful cancer while managing the day to day needs of their own son at the same time.

In a world full of legitimate reasons to sit on the sidelines, Sammy's Superheroes has chosen to stand up and lead an effort to make lives better for all children fighting neuroblastoma. Simply put, we are inspired by Sammy Superheroes and wholeheartedly support their work.

It is with honor and gratitude to recommend my friends and non-profit partner Sammy's Superhero's.

While in the midst of fighting alongside the brave son, Sammy, for his cure and miracle as he fights Stage IV Neuroblastoma they are fighting for every other child in the fight for their life. They are funding life saving research for a cure.

They also fund Binkeez for Comfort for which I am the Founder and Executive Director to ensure these children are provided love, comfort and sense of security as they fight for their life.

We are honored to walk alongside a family and organization that inspires our hearts and actions to fight and work even harder for the bravest of lives.
