About 100 people gathered on Court Street Tuesday night to pray for 'Super' Sam Santhuff, a five-year-old Fulton boy with cancer.
The crowd worshiped through prayer and song, lighting candles as a symbol of hope. Santhuff was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in August 2013 and was deemed cancer free in March.
The disease came back shortly after, but the community support continues for the young boy as he undergoes treatments at St. Louis Children's Hospital in St. Louis. 'Super' Sam and his family have relied on their faith for strength throughout the fight, holding true to a particular Bible verse, Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
