Samantha Corpus was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome at age 3½. Throughout her young life, Samantha has endured multiple visits at the Rett Center at Baylor College of Medicine and continues her care with experts at Katie’s Clinic for Rett Syndrome at Children’s Hospital in Oakland.
Samantha is a prime example of perseverance because she continues to live life to the fullest! Samantha is a high-functioning young woman who has played basketball in the Special Olympics, surfed with her brothers in Hawaii and is currently attending a transitional school to further her learning - all while in the care of specialists!
Thankfully, Samantha is still seizure-free and is thriving at 21 years old! Samantha lives with her parents, John and Kathy, and her brothers Julian (23) and Jacob (18). Samantha may not be able to speak, but her eyes will tell you, THANK YOU, for everything you do!
