Sam’s Fans is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization created by Nikki and Dan McCarthy, in memory of their daughter, Samantha. Sam, born in 1998, was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia (FA), an inherited anemia that leads to bone marrow failure, in the first grade. She underwent a bone marrow transplant at just ten years old. Following her transplant, Sam spent much of the next fourteen months in the hospital. During those long, arduous days in the hospital, music and art therapy was one of the few things that brought Sam joy and comfort. It allowed her to better express her emotions, relieved stress, and was often the highlight of her day. Despite her courageous battle, Samantha McCarthy passed away on October 15, 2009 at the age of eleven. In 2015, to honor Sam’s life and legacy, her parents founded Sam’s Fans with the mission of providing therapeutic music and art interventions to children with life-threatening illnesses.
