Samuel James Wallman, age 7, of Lincoln, Nebraska passed away on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. Sam was born May 10, 2014 to Mitchell and Jennifer Wallman.
On Friday, February 4, Sam was found unresponsive at home. Sam was transported by ambulance to the hospital where they soon found he had suffered a severe brain bleed due to a ruptured AVM. Sam was life-flighted to Children's Hospital where he required emergency surgery. The next morning we discovered that swelling was too much and Sam's injury was not survivable.
To find some good in this horrible tragedy we decided to give the gift of life through the donation of Sam's organs. So far Sam has directly impacted the lives of five people, in them his legacy will live on. Sam is our real-life hero and a hero to many other families.
Sam was the most creative and adventurous yet tender-hearted silly boy! He admired and had the closest bond with his 11-year-old brother. He loved and gave the best snuggles to his baby sister. Sam was a sweet, cuddly momma's boy, and he fought until the very end with the courage and strength of his father! While we are sad that Sam has left us so soon, we rejoice in knowing God has a greater purpose for him! He will always live on as our 7-year-old superhero!
