The meme spawns back to a photo of a young Sam Griner, who furled his brow and pumped his fist just in time for a great photo-op.
Sam is now 8-years-old and he hasn’t been shy in embracing his fans, often returning online to post new photos with his parents.
Justin Griner, Sam's father , discovered his kidneys were failing before Sammy was born, but he now spends about four hours a day three days a week undergoing dialysis. A GoFundMe campaign that has been setup has reached over $14,000 in 5 days.
Laney Griner, Sam's mother and Justin's wife. launched a GoFundMe site this week to help find a living donor and raise money toward the costs of Justin's transplant. Medicare will cover 80 percent of Justin's post-surgery costs, but the Griners will still need about $12,000 in the first year to cover drugs alone, and he'll be on many drugs for the rest of his life, she said.
