Sam is my son. In 2004 when aged 11 yrs, Sam sadly lost his younger brother Jamie to cancer when Jamie was just 5 yrs old. Throughout Jamie`s illness, Sam was EXTREMELY supportive despite being so young himself. Since Jamie`s death Sam has undertaken voluntary work with a special needs sporting club in South Wales and has recently become a trustee of a children`s charity which we run as a family to help seriously ill children from all over the UK. Sam took part in the Cardiff half marathon for our charity (Jamfund) last October, and is running in the London marathon with myself ( his father) next year. Sam even donated his Christmas presents aged 12 yrs to a children`s cancer charity and I think he deserves recognition for how he has always been, without asking for any praise. Sam now works full time, very long hours but still does his charity work. I know he would be as proud to be an Olympic torch bearer as his mother and I are to be his parents. I know Sam took his brother`s death extremely hard, but he was always there for his mother and I and even more so for Jamie when he was ill. Sam`s nature is very caring and he has done SO MUCH for other less fortunate children and adolescents. Please consider giving him the chance to remember something positive for the rest of his life as he has had such a tough time during his childhood. (yet never once complained).
