For Kids LikeSamantha

Samantha was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 people. An MRI revealed the disease caused an optic nerve glioma, a cancerous growth in the nerves of Sammy's eyes. Through her path to healing, Sammy has bonded with many Valley Children's staff members. She even calls her child life specialist, Joy Johnson, "her Joy." After three years of coming in for treatments and therapies, the staff becomes like family.
