Founder and President Emeritus, Sunshine Foundation
December 2, 1935 - June 4, 2014

"Not all children are able to run and play and enjoy life. Many are innocent victims of birth defects, accidents and deadly diseases. Shouldn't each child know that somebody cares enough to see his or her dream come true?" - Bill Sample.
