Samantha “Sammy” is an 11 year old who since her diagnosis of a Craniopharyngioma (at age 5) has turned to art as a source of comfort and joy. Sammy has had three brain surgeries and as a result has lost all pituitary function. She is on full hormone replacement and is tested daily by hypothalamic obesity, adrenal insufficiency, and diabetes insipidus. While life is challenging, Sammy is determined and often up for trying new things. She loves art, logic puzzles, origami, and animals.
