Bobby and Angie Snow Milbourn, have three children. Their oldest child, Samantha, an active, spunky, 7 year old French immersion student, started experiencing upper back pain around Christmas time, 2010. Her pains worsened over the weeks following. Bobby and Angie sought answers from their chiropractor, and pediatrician. Both doctors couldn’t determine what was causing the pain. As time passed Samantha began feeling numbness and tingling in her legs and feet. When she began having trouble walking they knew something was seriously wrong.

A trip to Primary Children’s Hospital revealed the source of the problem. Samantha was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a malignant bone tumor on March 7, 2011. The cancer originated in her T5 vertebrae. The tumor, the size of a man’s fist, crushed the vertebrae, wrapped itself around the spinal column and protrudes in to her chest cavity, pushing on the lungs. The day after her diagnosis, surgeons removed the portion of the tumor wrapped around the spinal column. This surgery relieved Samantha of the intense pain she had been experiencing and restored the feeling to her legs and feet, but left her unable to sit up (the tumor had been providing support to her spine in the absence of the vertebrae). A week later Samantha underwent another back surgery; rods and screws were placed between the T3 through T7 vertebrae to provide structure and stability. Initial tests and scans showed that the cancer has not spread to her organs or other bones.

Samantha is receiving intensive inpatient chemotherapy to rid her body of the remainder of the tumor. Fourteen rounds of chemotherapy are planned (she is currently on round 4), as well as 5-6 weeks of radiation treatments. Doctors anticipate these treatments will take place over the next year. Additional back surgeries will be required to adjust the support structures in her back as she grows.

Samantha and her family really need your help! Please join us by doing 'Anything for a Friend'!

This is really not just an effort from DE, Overspray and Falcon Corps. This is an effort from all of the local PB community to support one of our own. The momentum for this is really picking up and the support is wide and far and it is bigger than any team or group.

Please if anyone has something to contribute to this and can help please contact me to jump in to the mix.

Amen Dan. I've got people asking how they can prepay for the event already? Will we be doing that on DE's site? I've pointed them to donate here http://www.anythingforafriend.com/he...ntha-milbourn/ if they want to get something to Samantha quick.

Considering flying in from Missouri. Seriously. If I can get the following things:

A loaner setup (gun, tank, hopper - pump ok).

A place to crash

A ride from the airport

I will bring:

Man hugs
My own mask and clothes (can carry them on)
My unique sense of humor and possibly a bad case of gas.

Any takers?

<3 Smurf. That's awesome.

Got two offers for loaner setups, two rides from the airport so far - Jared's offering to let me crash out with him, and Jimmy and I can make the "stinkies" together.

Sounds like this could come together in a truly epic manner.

I'm working on getting a few of us down from WY for this to help the cause, can't promise anything but I'll try...

I know its early but what's the word on paint and air for this?
Can we camp at the field or anyplace near by friday night?

I don't know about Paint, but Air should be included in the event entry. And camping, you can camp at the field if you want.

It will be BYOP but Saints PB will be on site selling Pink paint and donating a portion to the cause.

Air will be covered by DE at no cost.

Plenty of camping at the field.

Sorry for the lack of update on this guys. Things are growing for this and it has really turned in to a UT paintball community event not a DE event.

There have been so many people and companies wanting to help out I can hardly keep up with it.

The format will be a simple 7 flag format for points.

2 Generals

Team Radiation
Matt Brown from Falcon Corps

Team Chemo
Dan Saunders from Desert Edge


This event will have reffs from several teams and organizations

Several of the Desert Edge players will be playing in this also.

We have done all we can to keep the costs down for this so feel free to donate directly if you feel so inclined.

We are updating the website daily with new sponsors and information.

Please do your best to come to the Awards and benefit dinner that same night.

Yes sorry this is all my fault.

I have been extremely swamped.

Because of the lack of time for this to get organized we have decided to postpone this event and also the dinner.

We are looking at spring dates to do this and I will let you know ASAP on the new details and the new date.

Thank you again for all the support you have given for this event and for Samantha.
