Sam passed away on 16 July 2003 from Hodgkins Disease, having been diagnosed 6 years earlier. Throughout her illness, Sam’s bravery, dignity, selflessness and continued zest for life was legendary. It is awe inspiring the way she almost seemed to embrace the disease as an opportunity; to learn more about holistic medicine, to meet different people, study different philosophies, to learn about the power of the mind and more about herself. Sam’s illness eventually took her life but it never seemed to dampen her spirit - and her spirit will continue to inspire us forever.

Aims
The Perky Sam Fund aims to raise money so that Sam’s influence will extend beyond us, to make a positive and tangible benefit to the lives of those who are fighting cancer; to help fund research or potentially provide scholarships to those studying in the field. It’s our way of giving something back, on Sam’s behalf, and in her honour.

Benefactors of the Perky Sam fund will be announced on the web site.
