Samantha's Story

November 19, 2018

Samantha is a lovely young woman who looks like every other college student. But she walks around with a heavy burden. Samantha knows that she will eventually need a heart transplant. She was born with a congenital heart defect.

Despite this burden, Sam lives her life fully and participates on every level. She is already determined to give back to the people who have cared for her and the hospital that has helped to guard her life – Children’s Hospital. She has spent this academic year as an intern helping to fundraise and inspire the community to support the hospital.

Samantha has no anger, only gratitude and love for her life.
