His biggest nemesis, leukemia, was first defeated in March after a four year bout, but it reared its ugly head again in July attacking Sam's central nervous system.
"You can't fight anymore, I'm just blessed to have options," Sam's mother, Chystal Brigman said.
For this next bout, Sam will need a partner a bone marrow transfusion. Luckily his three-year-old brother Jack turned out to be a perfect match.
"So we spent a lot of time helping and he's very eager to help his brother. It's a great story," Dr. Arun Panigrahi of Pediatric Oncology said.
The procedures could begin in next week or so and leave Sam in the hospital for weeks.
You know you get overwhelmed it's overwhelming scary because I'm looking at both sides. I have a donor and one receiving so it's both sides," Brigman said.
Sam knows the generous gift his three year old brother is offering and says it's one he'd be willing to repay if he could.
"I would help him, I would donate my bone marrow to him too," Sam said.
