We at Project Permitting are proud to be the lead benefit Chair for the FIGHT WITH DOM, on January 21st . This is our first charity event.
Music festival Benefit Set For
On Saturday, January 21, 2023, a music fest benefit will be taking place at the Aquaduck Beer Garden at 9214 Espada Rd, San Antonio, TX 78214 from 1pm to midnight. All proceeds will go toward financial assistance for Dominic Samford.
Dominic, a recent McCollum High School graduate, was preparing to go to college like most 18 year olds. After a visit to the ER, thinking he had a bad strep throat case, he was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia), only about 200,000 cases of this type are diagnosed in the US each year.
He was transferred immediately to University Hospital where his Leukemia was labeled aggressive. His mother, Norma Samford said, “He was ready for the next stage, with all the hopes and dreams of a young adult getting ready to start the next chapter in his life. Instead, he's getting ready for the biggest fight of his life.”
Like most parents, they were not prepared for the diagnosis emotionally or financially. Dominic's treatment will be six rounds of chemo, at a minimum. Each round is at least 29 to 36 days each and a bone marrow transplant will follow once the leukemia is under eradicated. Transplant means an additional 2 to 3 months inpatient.
There will be considerable income loss since one parent will always be by his side throughout the treatment. No one should have to face this alone.
To help the family, Project Permitting, benefit Chair, along with The Aquaduck Beer Garden will host a benefit filled with a day of music, talent, food, and vendors.
Every 180 seconds someone in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the leading source of free blood cancer information, education, and support for patients, survivors, caregivers, families, and healthcare professionals. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death among children and adolescents worldwide; approximately 280,000 children ages 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer each year. Chemotherapy is the main treatment for childhood leukemia.
The success of the benefit will only be possible with support of local companies, both big and small.
