Sam, the youngest twin and the youngest in the family, is the “baby” of the family, McNulty said. She also says her youngest son is the silliest.
“He’s a typical boy. Tell him something smells and he thinks it’s the funniest thing in the world,” she laughed.
Despite all their medical troubles, the twins are still happy-go-lucky teenage boys.
“Their smiles really do light up the room,” their mother said.
McNulty said she is hoping to have a fundraising event in February.
“We want them home. We don’t want to send them to a facility. We just need a little help in doing so,” she said.
Cash donations may be made directly to the Holy Family Credit Union, 70 East St Methuen, MA 01844 in care of the Max & Sam Van Fund or via the web at gofundme.com search Max and Sam Snider Van Fund.
