β€œThe kids of Smile-A-Mile and their families are the most resilient, tenacious, positive, inspiring bunch of people in my life. They don’t ever let cancer define them and β€œfight like kids” everyday with a remarkable determination along with a gratitude for things both big and small. Over the last 12 years, they have given me a renewed (and much needed) perspective on life, living and what is important! I love being part of the Smile-A-Mile family surrounded by a bunch of my heroes…those we serve and those I serve beside!”

"Working with families at Smile-A-Mile, reminds me of Maya Angelou's famous quote 'People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.' When working with our kids and families, I feel an array of emotions, but most of all blessed. Having the opportunity to walk beside these incredible kids and witness hope and strength like I've never seen before, has been a blessing to me."

"Smile-A-Mile is a family! I have been a part of the SAM family for the past three years as a member of the Junior Board and have been honored to serve as Junior Board President for the past two. I have also had the privilege of running the NYC marathon twice as a fundraiser for SAM. Being a part of Smile-A-Mile isn't just about doing something good; it's about standing alongside these brave kids and their families, showing them they're not alone. I've seen firsthand how it makes a real difference in the lives of the kids and their families which is why I'm so passionate about Smile-A-Mile. Once you are a part of SAM you are forever in the family!"

β€œI joined the SAM board three years ago after connecting to their mission of hope and healing, although not through childhood cancer, but rather an understanding of the fragility of life after the untimely death of my first husband in 2015. As I’ve become more and more invested in SAM’s mission, I’ve been deeply and profoundly moved by the unending, unshakeable dedication of the SAM staff to the families they serve. I’ve been inspired by their passion to go well beyond themselves to bring light and joy in the darkest moments. Because of the beauty I’ve seen demonstrated through SAM I have been forever changed and so has my family. Our eyes and hearts have been opened to these precious children and teens.”
