Sam was not breathing when he was born and was placed on life support in the NICU for six weeks. Eventually, Sam’s oxygen levels started to improve, but doctors noticed that he had a small hemorrhage on his brain. As he grew older, Sam was not meeting the various milestones he was expected to reach and would eventually be diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture that is caused by damage that occurs to the immature or developing brain. As he began heavily experiencing symptoms, Sam would unfortunately fall over often when doing something as simple as walking around his home. After going through various kinds of therapies and using braces on his legs, Sam eventually gained better control while he walked.
Sam is described as a funny and caring boy who has a great personality and remains outgoing. He’s happy at school where he has lots of friends who really enjoy being in his company. Sam enjoys watching comedy shows on TV and playing his Playstation in his free time. Sam has a true passion for music and really enjoys singing country songs.
