Sam is a Co-Founder of Sharing America's Marrow and a severe aplastic anemia survivor. The only cure for her disease is a bone marrow transplant, but she does not have a matching donor out of the 28 million people on the worldwide donor registry. Sam traveled the country in 2015 with her sister Alex and her best friend Taylor, sharing her story to inspire people to join the registry with the hopes of finding a match for her and for the thousands of other patients needing transplants. Sam is an artist and runs Couch Potato Creative.
