Samantha and Tim met in high school and became good friends. Because they hung out together so much her parents constantly asked if Tim was Sam's boyfriend. "He's not my boyfriend!" was always her reply. But things change and they soon began dating. In August of 2010 Sam was diagnosed with cancer and on a weekend trip to Philadelphia prior to the start of her chemotherapy, Tim proposed. They pushed their wedding date back to June of 2012 so that Sam could complete her chemo treatments and have time to recover. Tim was Sam's rock, attending every doctor appointment and treatment session. Through guest donations and a dollar dance they will be honoring the help Sam received from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They want their wedding to celebrate health, happiness and the companionship they share with one and other.
