read about Sam's journey here: samlibassi.tumblr.com/
As soon as I knew I was going to be in Chicago, I texted Sam. Sam is the guy who would run circles around you in gym class. He's always had an inexplainable amount of energy...and he's always been quick to find a way to use it. If there was a new person to meet, Sam would be the first to talk to them...and continue talking until there was nothing left to talk about. If there was a race to be won, Sam would be the first to step up to the challenge. Sam is easily the most energetic and most friendly person I know.
Then Sam got cancer............and nothing changed about Sam. He was still the friendliest and most fun filled guy you'd ever meet. He loves God, he loves people, and he loves to laugh. Now he has cancer again...and you know what? He still hasn't changed. Sam is Sam, and cancer can't change that.
When I texted Sam that day, we didn't think we'd get to meet up, but then we figured out that if I went to Chicago early, we could hang out before he flew to CO. It was awesome: we met up, had the most amazing deep dish pizza ever, and then decided to make a video for his blog.
In this video, you can see the fighter in Sam. He's a runner, so he knows how to push through the pain and how to keep going, no matter what. This video also shows you more of the serious side in Sam...what's he's had to deal with, and how he has dealt with it.
If you ever get to meet Sam, you'll definitely see his fun filled, energetic, crazy side...and if you ever get to know Sam, you'll realize he's a very determined guy who loves God, loves people, and loves life.
