2 Boys, 1 Disease, 1 Team

Remission Squared

What:  LLS Light the Night Walk

When:  September 25 at 7pm

Where:  BMW Performance Center

Sam Brown and Justin McConnell were two ordinary boys, ages 10 and 12 until one day they were brought together by leukemia.  Both boys attend James F. Byrnes High School in Duncan.  Both boys' parents work for the same company and, after a long battle, both Sam and Justin have beaten leukemia in the past year. 

Justin completed his 3 1/2 years of chemo in April of 2014.  Sam completed his 3 1/2 years of chemo in October of 2013.  Both Sam and Justin will walk this September to celebrate survival, remission and a cure.  Their team is called Remission Squared.

Sam made this video about his treatment when he was in 7th grade.

October of 2014 will be the ONE YEAR anniversary of Curing Sam!

Sam was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in June of 2010 at age 10.

In October of 2013 he completed his final chemo, at age 14.  With faith, hope and love we plan to celebrate the end of his first year off treatment.  

Please consider walking with us on September 25th at the BMW Performance Center.  If you can, please donate to LLS.  LLS lobbied for drugs for Sam when there was a shortage of a lifesaving chemo.  The research they have done to cure leukemia contributed greatly to Justin and Sam's success.

The money you donate funds treatments that save lives like Justin and Sam's; it's all due to people like you. Without your efforts, LLS could not provide these lifesaving treatments. LLS is making cures happen with your help.

Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams. These efforts culminate in an inspirational, memorable evening walk on Thursday, 9/25.

T-Shirts are available if you need one.

Please email Sam or Justin with your size and how to get the t shirt to you! Email to Sam at 3kids@charter.net - by September 4th please.  

Or, email Justin at this address Kim.McConnell@aflglobal.com by September 4th. 

Please join our team, Remission Squared, by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will save lives today. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!
