Samantha was born with a unique heart and as a result has feeding difficulties, which has resulted in her needing a g-tube to be fed. Sammy also has a history of stroke and cerebral palsy.
Sammy had her second open heart surgery in July, 2020. She has recovered well and is doing well. She will continue to have cardiology appointments for life. Her team has already planned another surgical intervention for the summer of 2021.
Many people with single ventricle physiology end up needing a heart and liver transplant later in life.
Sammy's Mommy said she is a joy and a light to their world! Sammy loves stuffed animals, and enjoys playing with the toys her therapists bring. They are both interactive and fun!
The Aubrey Rose Foundation helped this family with an air purifier to help cleanse the air that she breathes.
Help us continue to support children, like Samantha!
