Family Seeks Prayers and Donations for Cancer Patient
web posted June 4, 2012
One of Edgefield’s most known and loved residents is in need of our
community support and prayers. Samuel Merriweather, “Sam”, as he is
known, has been a well-respected “cook” throughout Edgefield County for
over 20 years. He is the father of six beautiful children and now
a new grandfather.
A few months ago Sam was diagnosed with liver cancer and is still
battling this disease. His most recent surgery has left him unable to
work. Unfortunately, family obligations don’t stop when we are stricken
with life-threatening disease. But it’s comforting to know that there
are so many people in this community that know Sam, know his wife and
children (ages 7-18), and know what a close family they are. This
community is so generous to them during the holidays and we are asking
for your generosity once more.
A Benefit Account has been established to help Sam and his family
through these rough times. We are asking that donations be made to the
account listed below. No donation will be considered too small and is
greatly appreciated. Most of all, please pray for our brother. Thank
you all and God bless.
To donate please deposit to:
“Benefit Account for Samuel Merriweather”
