About Sam

Sam eating

In July 2005 one-year Sam was injured in a near fatal car accident. After being in hospital for nine months and going through numerous serious operations, Sam finally went home.

Sam is paralysed from the neck down and needs equipment to help him breathe. He also needs two full time carers at all times. He celebrated his fourth birthday in March 2008.

Every single penny raised via Stuff4Sam is used to buy equipment that Sam needs to help him develop.

    Hi Vicki,
    Thanks for coming by the blog! We have heard a lot about the fantastic work you have done with Sam at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and can’t thank you enough. Anyway, stay in touch and spread the word about the website – it’s great having people such as yourself pop up and say hello.
    Cheers, Henny

    Hi Patricia,

    I’m so sorry to hear on your daughter’s crash and the trauma that she, you and your family have gone through. Words fail really. I do hope that in some small way this site offers some hope and that we can help. I hope also that she is on the road to recovery and healing

    As you may have read we have managed through fundraising to buy Sam some much needed equipment that could not be bought by the NHS. This has included a FES exercise bike and arm extensions. The bike has been quite pivotal to building up his physical strength, muscles in his legs and his immunity. As you will know having a strong immune system is essential. It has also been crucial to keeping a wonderfully sparkley and beautiful little boy happy and entertained.

    I will forward your details to Neil and Kazumi (if they haven’t already seen your comment) as they will be able to explain more about what steps they have taken and why. Please do stay in touch with us either through the blog or via email, you’ll find us at

    I also hope that someone close to the family does take this website on and raise money for others like Sam out there. Events will bring people closer and maybe help other parents who are in the same position as what Sams parents are.

  44. Janea said

    So sad to hear about this tragedy – it’s devastating. I only heard about Sam and his family today but I wish I’d known them. Sam looks to have been an adorable and happy little boy and I hope they are all running around together now at last and at peace.

    What a lucky boy to have been so loved.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Sam’s extended family and all who knew and loved them all.

  45. Robin said

    Sam clearly brought much love and happiness to many people’s lives. His parents, family and unknown friends around the world did some wonderful things to make his short life a full one.

    I can’t imagine the agony his parents went through – it is surely every parent’s dread fear. I hope they found some peace at the end, but would urge anyone in anything like a similar situation to find someone to talk to. Life is so precious.

    You are together now forever and now Sam can run and laugh and play

    May your family feel all of the love from the public that you so clearly deserve for being such wonderful devoted parents

    Night night little man – mummy and daddy will keep looking after you in heaven.

    I am so sad to hear about Sam’s death and his parents’ soon afterwards. I am a mother of two and I can understand (albeit in a tiny way) the devastation they must have felt. I admire them hugely for the great 5 years they gave Sam and wish them all much peace and happiness now.

  59. Fatima said

    Es precisamente en estos momentos que uno logra darse cuenta que el amor y el dolor son infinitos y van de la mano, porque el amor tan grande que los unia y el dolor tan inmenso que significo para sus padres el perder a su hijo, los llevo a tomar esa determinacion para no dejarlo solo nunca, es que no siquiera la muerte la muerte les impidira estar juntos………Dios permita que esa decision sea tomada ante los ojos de Dios como un acto de misericordia y puedan estar juntos los tres y empezar una nueva etapa llena de paz, tranquilidad y felicidad.
    Que Dios les Bendiga y que descansen en paz…….

    Kazumi-san, I really wish I could meet you before.

    I am also a full time Carer for over 8 years. I am/was looking for some Japanese people who are like me being married to a British man and a Carer in the UK.

    Please rest in peace.

    For the family,

    I was moved by the sad news.
    I sympathize with you from the bottom of my heart.

I am so sad to hear the news and I hope you have all gone to a happier more relaxing place to be together. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If only all families were lucky enough to feel such an obvious strong love and such a bond and devotion to each other. You are all three so brave. I hope you have found peace with each other. My love and thoughts stay with you, although I never met you. My heart goes out to you and the loved ones you left behind.

Que la profunda pena que nos ha causado su partida nos lleve a pensar en lo verdaderamente importante de nuestras vidas y la bendición que significa tenerlo. No se han ido, solo se adelantaron a seguir juntos la ventura de amarse.

    Con amor,


  79. Jennie said

    I too have heard this desperately sad tale on the news. After the initial horror of the accident, to think that this beautiful family so full of love should endure even more pain beggars belief. It is something I will never understand and in truth my faith wobbles a great deal right now.
    The only comfort is that you are all together now running free with no more pain or sadness ever.
    God bless you all and if ever anyone wondered what love was, see here-this family epitomises love and the unbreakable bond true love brings.
    I’m sorry this happened to you. Be happy now.Be free.

    Triste esta Noticia …muy lamentable solo espero q otros padres no tomene esto como ejemplo. la perdida de un hijo es dolorosa pero no es razon para quitarse la vida… Dios siempre da el consuleo q estos padres no estuvieron dispuestos a recibir.

    • Mi nombre no importa said

      No es tan facil, es a personas con menos problemas y sufren de depresion, imaginate lo dificil q es para un ser humano ver morir a alguien tan querido como su hijo amado… no todo el mundo ama a mismo grado y por lo que muestran era grande ese amor, no creo es un ejemplo lo que hicieron al suicidarse, fue definitivamente una reaccion dolorosa, creo que su imagen de dios es distinta a la que puede ser para mi o usted… a lo mejor entendian si se iban por el barranco se iban todos juntos al cielo, yo no se donde esten ahora mismo los padres de Sam, quisa retornando en otra vida para ver si en la proxima hacen las cosas a base de aceptacion y paciencia… mira no se… lo que se es que fue mucho su sufrir y si yo les perdono entiendo que Dios tambien, a lo mejor no tiene nada que ver con perdon sino con aceptacion, cosa que los padres no aceptaron la voluntad de Dios, pero quien dice realmente fue voluntad de Dios y tampoco sabemos si fue falta de voluntad pues se nota eran fuertes, quien sabe si lo sonaron quien sabe tantas cosas… realmente tampoco se, solo se y estoy clara en una sola cosa que el sufrimiento de esos padres fue muy muy muy grande y que nadie humano tiene poder para jusgar mientras si para ayudar en lo que tanto lucharon ellos en ver como personas que no pueden caminar pueden adquirir libertad y a lo mejor eso no depende del movimiento de piernas o brazos sino del movimiento neuronal a otras consiencias / dimensiones donde el cuerpo no importa… bueno repito yo los perdono y solo espero esten ahora mismo juntos, pero eso es solo lo que puedo analizar de lo que mi razon de humano capta, alla en el mas alla, donde el espiritu ve mas son ellos quienes juzgan nosotros aca solo tratamos lo mejor con las experiencias que vivimos y aquellos son dichosos los iluminados por dios en un mundo de materia. Mientras a mi me hace querer estar mas vivo, no se porque, supongo me hace ver las cosas de otra perspectiva y quien sabe si todo esto es un mensaje para aquellos que aun estamos aqui sobre cual realmente es nuestro proposito de vida, no quiero decir es Dios pues muchos dicen esto y terminan suicidandose, creo es mas profundo y complicado que mencionar la palabra Dios o creo que no es complicado nada pero el nisiquiera entender eso ya complica el razonamiento, podria estar aqui horas escribiendo asi que para finalizar dire que amo a estos seres que se fueron y que les perdono deseando logren paz y que otros escuchen un mensaje de amor en esto y no un auspicio al suicidio.

    what a family. what pain, what suffering, what love, what actions. like a chain reaction, your story has triggered a wave of humanity across the world…where you have showed us that love and love lost are more powerful then anything else on the planet. I am humbled at this story of such an insatiable love. While our bodies have an expiry date, the spirit is immortal. You will continue to live and breathe in all that is good in this world.

    With a broken heart, I say hello and goodbye.

    Sorry – it is a sad tale. But let’s guard against advocating suicide as a sign of devotion.

    • Barbara said

      Noone is advocating this, but these people devoted their lives to this little boy and couldn’t see the point in living without him. Any parent losing a child would consider it – he was their reason for living.

    • Pom said

      What a ridiculous thing to say. What sort of moron are you? Keep your stupid and wholly inappropriate comments to yourself. These wonderful people Neil and Kazumi loved their son Sam, real love drives you to make painful decisions.

    Hi Sam and your amazing parents!
    I am touched, and yet feel so sad over this story.
    Your parents are two very amazing people, as Im sure you know.
    People as good as yourself and your parents are very rare to find and I hope you are finally all at peace together.
    You will never be forgotton, and the love for you and your parents will live on forever.

    Reading these moving and heartfelt tributes to this wonderful but so tragic family has renewed my faith in human nature. There are a lot more beautiful people out there than I imagined in my wildest dreams. Dreadful events like this could be a catalyst for so much good. Think about each other, care about each other and most of all, love each other. God bless Sam and his devoted parents.

    Quien soy yo para juzgar algo así, solo puedo respetar su desición y sentir, como lo hago en este momento, una enorme pena por el dolor que ellos, sus padres, deben haber sentido. Su enorme amor y su sacrificio quedarán grabados en alguna parte del Universo y ahí podrán ser felices los tres. Dios sí entiende de un acto de amor absoluto como este … yo simplemente lo respeto. Adiós a los tres.

    Letter From Heaven
    When tomorrow starts without me,
    and I’m not there to see;
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes,
    all filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
    the way you did today,
    while thinking of the many things,
    we didn’t get to say.

    I know how much you love me,
    as much as I love you,
    and each time that you think of me,
    I know you’ll miss me too;
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    please try to understand,
    that an Angel came and called my name,
    and took me by the hand,
    and said my place was ready,
    in heaven far above,
    and that I’d have to leave behind,
    all those I dearly love.

    But as I turned to walk away,
    a tear fell from my eye,
    for all life, I’d always thought,
    I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    so much yet to do,
    it seemed almost impossible,
    that I was leaving you.

    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    the good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    and all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday,
    just even for awhile,
    I’d say goodbye and kiss you
    and maybe see you smile.

    But then I fully realized,
    that this could never be,
    for emptiness and memories,
    would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    my heart was filled with sorrow.

    But when I walked through heaven’s gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    from His great golden throne,

    He said, “This is eternity,
    and all I’ve promised you”.
    Today for life on earth is past,
    but here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    but today will always last,
    and since each day’s the same day,
    there’s no longing for the past.

    But you have been so faithful,
    so trusting and so true.
    Though there were times you did some things,
    you knew you shouldn’t do.
    But you have been forgiven
    and now at last you’re free.
    So won’t you take my hand
    and share my life with me?

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    don’t think we’re far apart,
    for every time you think of me,
    I’m right here, in your heart.

    Sam y Padres.

    Dios está feliz de tener como ángeles a personas que han demostrado en la tierra su amor incondicional.
    Amar a un hijo en las condiciones de Sam, es algo que pocos pueden saber en esta vida.
    Gloria a Dios por la oportunidad que nos dió a nosotros como familia el tener a mi hermano Marco Aurelio por 34 años de su existencia, sufriendo de su enfermedad, muy parecida al pequeño Sam. Solo mis padres pueden entender el dolor que sienten ustedes con la perdida de un hijo, pero ellos siguieron luchando por nosotros, por mi y mis otros dos hermanos. Pero ustedes solo lo tenían a él y ya que no está en la tierra, debían seguir luchando con él desde donde están ahora. El cielo.
    Tendrán la alegría que nosotros nunca tendrémos, ver a su hijo sano, verlo correr, jugar, reír y divertirse con los demás ángeles y saber que ahora goza de una vida mejor.
    Todo el amor del mundo para ustedes, descansen en esa gran paz que ahora disfrutan y sepan que más que juzgarlos, los sentimos realmente complacidos de saber que en el mundo, aún existe el amor.

    Desde Chile con amor.

Pero a lo mejor Dios que es lo mas poderoso les tenía algo mas grande como lo hizo con mi hermano y mi cuñada permitirle tener dos hermosos niños que ahora sin olvidarse en ningún momento del niño que perdieron son felices porque ellos cuentan que son cinco , es decir el angelito que siempre les acompaña y les cuida.

    A truly tragic story of how just a split second of loss of concentration and care – behind the wheel,should cause such terrible consequences on a country lane. In their life with Sam his parents asked for prayers, they needed a miracle to make him whole again after such a devastating car crash but they were instead dealt a further blow in the form of a deadly meningitis which wrenched him from them. Finality. They could not go on.
    Put God out of the equation and science and research into it. Words are cheap the very best condolence people can give is to reach into their pocket and donate to research into spinal injury and make a day come sooner when we can heal the spinal cord after trauma. That would be a real tribute to these special people.
