Samantha is a sweet 1 year old with a special heart, and she has stolen the hearts of everyone at Ranken Jordan. Samantha was born with a complex heart condition that kept her left ventricle from developing. Because of this Samantha has had two major heart surgeries before celebrating her first birthday!
Samantha is recovering at Ranken Jordan before taking on a third major heart surgery. Meanwhile, she is quite the social butterfly. Her lively spirit brings a smile to every person’s face. This year, Samantha stole the show at the annual Ranken Jordan Halloween Parade! She loved every minute even when the other toddlers couldn’t quite handle all of the excitement!
“I absolutely love taking care of Sammy! She truly has an amazingly strong heart. I am in complete awe of Sammy and her family’s strong spirit and determination as she continues to heal and recover. I am so proud of her daily achievements at Ranken Jordan preparing for her transition home – healthier and happier. We are all looking forward to more smiles and more success!”
