Super Sammy’s Fund
The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds for treatments and that vital cure. Also to raise awareness of muscle wasting conditions. We also want to think of his future and help raise funds for equipment that Sammy may require as he gets older and his needs change. Also to help him be more independent and reach his full potential.
