Relay for Life 2013

Last Updated on: May 6th, 2014

I thought I’d try my hand at a slideshow. (You can watch it or click to flip from one slide to the next…)

I had a lot of pictures of Baby Sam, now 1.5 years old, from the Relay For Life, a cancer research and awareness event that was held in June 2013. I made a video of her, too. You might have missed it, so I included it below. It’s inspiring, and Sam even says “Good Girl” (her version of it) in it, repeating me, as she was walking her lap! She’s so awesome; you gotta love this little trooper! But now she’s not really a baby anymore… *weeping*…  She’s now “Sam” or “Sammi” and is beginning to learn how to talk. She says “tuck” for truck, “dink” for drink, and “Bub” for Bubble Guppies. She’s adorable! 🙂

Want more of  Sammi? Find all the links in this post!  (It includes my sister’s Facebook link to her personal page that has tons of pics and videos she made. She does’t mind if you take a look. Sam’s a pretty popular little girl. She is still getting monthly treatments at SickKids, a hospital that specializes in treating children.  Other than having cancer, Sam is healthy and happy, and is getting to be a super-smart little girl. 🙂

I’d also like to hear about your experiences with making slideshows. Did you like this one? Let me know, and please share this post on at least one of you social media networks (Show Sam off to the world!) Thank you!

  1. I hate it when this affects the children Lorriane, they’re the innocent ones. Is there a cure for this type of cancer or just more treatment throughout the years? Poor baby but I’m sure she’s just a trooper and at this time doesn’t quite realize what’s ahead of her.

    Thanks for sharing the slideshow with us, great job by the way. Also enjoyed the video too. What a wonderful event.

      There is no cure for cancer – any kind of cancer – that I know of, and Sammi has more treatment ahead of her in the months and years to come. She’s supposed to go every four to six weeks for treatment and my sister has been told that this will happen for the first six years of Sam’s life. Sigh. Yes, it’s horrible when children are afflicted with disease.

      I’m pleased with the slideshow; I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      Thanks for visiting, Adrienne. 🙂 I appreciate it. 🙂

    It’s amazing how strong little children can be. They gladly face challenges that the rest of us shy away from so fast.

      I agree; they seem to be so much more resilient than we are in the face of adversity. Of course, Sammi is still too young to realize what she’s facing, but I know it bothers her “big” brother when their mom has to take Sammi to Toronto and he is left behind, especially when Sammi was born. He’s understands that she has “boo-boo eyes”, though, and needs special doctors. He makes the trip with them on occasion, and loves it when he’s allowed to go with them… for the most part.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. 🙂

      I think it took me about three hours to do this. Of course, I had about 50 pictures to choose from, and did a lot of rearranging of the “slides”, so that they told the story I wanted to tell.

      It’s not that hard to learn, if you follow the WordPress instructions, which I did. Try one! 🙂

      Sammi IS a cutie!
