In August 2016, Piper Samuels was diagnosed with metastatic Ewing sarcoma, a form of bone and soft tissue cancer that effects approximately 200 children each year in the United States. Piper fought bravely and fiercely, always with dignity, grace, and her remarkable smile. Unfortunately, she passed away on August 13, 2017, just 12 months after diagnosis. She is the reason the Samuels family decided they must continue her fight.
In partnership with the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation, Piper's Legacy was created to honor their beautiful angel by promoting awareness and raising funds to fight Ewing sarcoma. In 2017, Piper's Legacy donated $50,000 to the Whitehurst Lab at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to further the lab's promising Ewing sarcoma research. Our goal is to contribute another $50,000 in 2018 and every year thereafter until we eradicate this disease.
We hope everyone had an amazing time Rocking the Challenge on Saturday, June 9th! It was so incredible seeing everyone tackle the obstacle course in support of Ewing sarcoma research. Thank you for participating! Together, we raised over $18,000!
Thank you for your support and for keeping Piper's family in your prayers.
