About Sam's gift

Cancer is difficult at any age, but as a teenager or young adult you understand what may happen and know what life should hold ahead.

The positivity that Sam showed throughout treatment is something that we want to encourage in others.

In Sam's memory, we have created Sam's Gift - a 'Journey Box' where hopes, fears and wishes can be expressed.

We want to help young cancer patients through the difficult times which may lie ahead of them. Sam's Gift aims to give something positive, at a time when it is most needed.

Initially, the boxes will be sent to teenagers and young adults, currently battling cancer at The Christie Hospital, where Sam underwent his treatment.
