Dave's Team Hope

Since 2006, amazing family and friends make up Dave's TEAM HOPE. This will be our 13th year! I created this team for my husband, David Sams, after he was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor.  He lost his battle on November 30th, 2007. We were blessed to have Dave in our lives.

My sweet, amazing Mom, Phyllis Maples, came to her journey’s end June 19th, 2018. A role model for so many. I am who I am because of her faith in God and her unconditional love. Never an unkind word and always supportive. Mom touched lives, helping those in need. You will always and forever be in my heart. 

Your words of encouragement and your participation, the ongoing support from my Dad (Harold Maples); Dave's Mom, Doris Sams; my daughter (Samantha Fraser); my son-n-law (Michael Fraser), my daughter, Kelly Brooks and Dave's co-workers from IBM, my friends have helped to keep Dave's TEAM HOPE alive. We do this in Dave's memory. We do this for others who have had to battle brain cancer. A special shout out to those who participated and/or made a donation last year. I hope to see you and your family again this year. To everyone who has ever participated or made a donation, I thank you. Know this, you make a difference. In the years you have participated, Dave's TEAM HOPE has added over $40,000.00 to the funding of research grants. The Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation Board thanks you for your continued support.

I am very proud of Dave's TEAM HOPE!  This is a special time of year to honor our loved one's and to support those around us who struggle day to day as survivors. The Race for Research helps us to move forward toward finding a cure. Mark your calendar for September 22, 2018 and support Dave's TEAM HOPE! 

From my heart,
