Sam’s Squad

In November, Newhouse + Noblin made a donation to Sam’s Squad, a group organized in support of a local 9-year old “superhero” named Sam, but more broadly designed to help fight Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy – the most severe form of the condition. Sam began life struggling to breathe and survive, and the odds were that he would never leave the hospital. But he did. Beginning at 9 weeks of age, Sam started treatment at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. Although Sam can now walk, his muscles are weak. So, when he needs to travel longer distances, he races around in an orange, manual wheelchair with wheels that light up as he rolls.

Sam overcame the odds and is now a fun-loving, sweet nine-year old kid who loves superheroes, Toy Story, music, movies, animals and his family. Sam is especially fond of his older brother, Will. Every day Sam continues to fight Muscular Dystrophy and beat the odds, always with great cheer and humor. That’s why we think of Sam as our superhero.

You can be a superhero too by joining Sam’s Squad and running or walking in the Dallas White Rock Marathon on December 4, 2011, volunteering, or making a donation to the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation.

I have known Tish Elliott with Newhouse + Noblin and worked with her for over a decade. She is very knowledgeable about the legal hiring market and has always been a valued resource. One of her best qualities is her intuitive ability to match the right candidate to the right job, enabling her placements to have long and successful careers with her clients.
