Samantha Reed Angerbrandt is a writer, photographer, and philanthropist. Samantha was born with a very rare congenital heart condition and was only the 3rd child to have the surgery at Shands Hospital in Gainesville that saved her life in the early 1990’s. She currently has a Hypoplastic Right Ventricle, Pulmonary Stenosis, Right AV Valve Atresia, and Transposition of the Great Arteries. She had a Hemi-Fontan and a Fontan Completion at the ages of 5 and 6 and has since been living life as normal as possible ever since. At the age of 28, she carried and birthed her first child and was one of the first women to have children with her type of heart condition. Doctors are currently watching Samantha for acute heart failure with belief that she will possibly need a heart transplant in the next 5 to 10 years. Samantha has refused to allow any diagnosis to change her way of living and loving life, sighting that the only doctor who knows her ailments and cure is the Lord in Heaven and with her faith in Him, she cannot fail. Samantha has had more than a decade of experience in paid copy writing and also offers several services to the public including eulogies, announcements, and press releases. She is also a journalist with her hometown paper, The Graceville News, which allows her passion of writing and her love for her hometown to merge. Samantha lives in Graceville with her husband, Dennis and daughter, Desi.
