When 14-year-old Sam from Rapid City learned he qualified for a once in a lifetime wish, he chose to throw a thank you party.
Sam battled Ewing sarcoma for a year and wanted to show his supporters how grateful he was. On July 24th, 2016 Sam’s friends and family gathered to celebrate with vintage arcade games, a game lounge, laser tag, a photo booth, a DJ and food. Sam’s friends and family were not surprised by his wish and stated his selfless spirit shined through once again.
