Samuel's Posse - Team Captain: Angela Schreiner

The  DSAF of NE appreciates your support and donations!  Thank You.

Sam was born on June 24, 2008. Shortly after his birth our doctor informed us he believed Sam had Down Syndrome. This came as a complete shock and presented feelings of fear and anxiety. A few days after his birth he was transported by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Omaha where he spent two weeks and had 1/3 of his colon removed due to Hirschsprung’s Disease. While at Children's the diagnosis of Down Syndrome was confirmed.

His five short years have been met with many hospital trips and several illnesses. In September of 2011, Sam was taken to the ER in Lincoln and immediately flown to Children’s by helicopter where he spent a week and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Since then Sam has experienced two other hospital visits due to complications of his Diabetes and Down Syndrome. In December of 2012, Sam was also diagnosed with Celiac Disease and is now enjoying a gluten free life.

Sam is a blessing in our lives. He loves music, golfing and playing with his brothers. Sam will be in kindergarten this fall and is excited to play with his friends and make new ones. 

Together with Sam We ask you to join the cause for creating awareness for Down Syndrome and helping show he can do anything he sets his mind to.
