At eight months old, Samantha was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis – a genetic disorder that affects the lungs, pancreas, and liver, and can also lead to life-threatening lung infections. Since her diagnosis, Samantha has been on a number of daily medications and she must also endure daily percussion therapy treatments. Polyps also develop in Samantha’s nasal passages which make it hard for her to breathe and smell. She has endured five surgeries on her nasal passages and must take enzymes before she is able to eat any food.
Samantha loved her wish trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida and, while she was there, she was also able to visit Universal Studios! She loved riding the rides and enjoying the entertainment, but her favorite experience was visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventure.
