January Student of the Month: Sam Looney

Posted:

MEMPHIS (WVVA) - We congratulate Sam Looney, the WVVA-Cole Chevy Student of the Month for January, a young student who has maintained a positive attitude in the face of a rare cancer diagnosis.

Sam is a second-grader at Richlands Elementary, in Mrs. Michelle Corini's class. He was nominated by a classmate who says he is always smiling, has a great attitude and always remains positive.

We surprised Sam with his award via Skype, because he is currently undergoing treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Tennessee.

Sam was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer at age 4. He is scheduled to receive a bone marrow transplant later this month.

If you'd like to send well-wishes to Same, you can mail cards, notes, or anything that can be sanitized, to the following address:
