Lesley Sees Sam Smith

February 6, 2015

On January 23, we sent Lesley, an 18 year-old who has been living with Neurofibromatosis, a disorder of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord), to see Sam Smith in Chicago. After the experience, she shared with us:

“Thank you so much for the great memories, I will cherish forever. This experience lifted my spirits and made me forget the negative things. I will always remember the touching songs I sang along to at the concert and being so close to him when he sang.”


Lesley heard about Do It For The Love through Team Amber, an organization supporting brain cancer awareness. Her mother nominated her, noting: “My daughter’s diagnosis has taken a very hard toll on my family. My daughter really seeks to go to this concert and I am unable to provide it for her. I pray that you can offer her these tickets so she can have an evening of fun, thank you so much.”

We are so glad that we were able to offer Lesley this experience!
