The mission of sMiles 4 Sammy is to encourage people to see that life is not about the length of time we live, it’s about the way we live in the in the length of time we are given. Every day is a gift and a healthy body is a gift. What can you do in 10 months?
The sMiles for Sammy Team was created in memory of Samantha Scott. Diagnosed with Trisomy 18 several months before birth, Sammy was expected to be stillborn as this condition is considered incompatible with life. She defied the odds and was given ten gift months with her family. During these ten months, her family made a decision to see each day as a gift and to focus on living life instead of being defined by a diagnosis.
