In 2002, Samantha’s life changed dramatically when she was struck by a car while crossing the street. Samantha suffered a severe spinal cord injury that has left her a quadriplegic. She is paralyzed from the neck down, dependent on a ventilator, and must have round the clock professional care. After the accident, Samantha was in the hospital for over a year. Today, Samantha is doing much better and feeling more positive. She works tremendously hard during her physical therapy sessions and refuses to let her condition slow her down.
Listening to her Dave Matthews Band cds has both comforted and inspired Samantha. This amazing girl couldn’t believe it when she got to meet singer, Dave Matthews, in person!
