October 1st

A year ago today, Sam was so happy that she made it to her transplant one year anniversary date. She was happy for her transplant team that she loved so much. With her new prognoses of “Acinar” cancer she knew there was no more anyone could do, it was just a matter of time. But the one year anniversary date was important to her because she knew how talented her team was and hard everyone worked to make that high risk surgery happen and be successful. They were successful, and it gave Sam an extra year of life. If the cancer didn’t turn out to be Acinar, I’m sure Sam would be blogging something about this today.
I know I haven’t been writing and keeping Sam's Blog going, but I can see from the counter that people still check it now and then. We will keep it going and hopefully have something to say or post now and then. In the mean time, if anyone wants to have something posted, sharing a Sam story, please feel free to send me an email at and I'll get it posted.

Almost a year since 1TC left us for a much better oplace. Her legacy remains as strong as ever. Thanks don't suffice for the manner in which she lived with such grace, courage and dignity and how she shared all that with the rest of the world. The Cipolla Family, the strength you exhibited was certainly a gift from above. Heartfelt prayers will always be with you.
