Wish Kid Defies Odds and Defines Life on His Terms

Sam is no stranger to the hard road. Born with a serious heart condition, Sam has spent his life battling illness and proving people wrong. Most of all, Sam refuses to let anything get in the way of his active status as a hockey player. With the help of Make-A-Wish on March 18, 2014, the San Jose Sharks signed Sam to a one-day contract that supplied him with a space in the Sharks’ locker room, some morning practice time, and even an opportunity to skate out for warm ups during the same night’s game against the Florida Panthers.
