I am a country music loving asphalt cowgirl with a passion for helping kids with cancer. I was born and raised in Orlando, FL where I currently reside. Although I was born and raised in the city don’t let that fool you. If you run into me, there’s no doubt you will find me wearing one of my many pairs of cowboy boots! There’s really not a time I can recall as a child where I wasn’t jammin’ out to country on the radio with my mom and two sisters in the car. Country music has always been a strong part of my life; recalling when I was 5, I sat on Santa’s lap and all I asked for was an Alan Jackson CD. Who knew a year later I would attend my very first concert to see Mr. Jackson. When not submerged in country music, I am a professional photographer, social media junkie, and most importantly spend my time devoted to my involvement with children with cancer. My passion started when a family friend was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the tender age of 12. What began with putting together some material, making her a blanket and wanting to get involved, turned into making blankets through her organization for her friends and other kids at a local hospital. One day I picked up a crochet book and decided to add crochet hats to the packages. Pairing that decision with my passion to help eventually turned into my own organization, “Unraveled by Samantha Dawn”. Word started to spread about what I was doing and parents began contacting me to crochet hats and wigs for their own child suffering from cancer. From 2012 to 2016, I’ve crocheted almost 200 hats and wigs, and just added dolls in the last year that have shipped to kids all over the United States, England, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and Canada. I have been fortunate enough to meet a number of the kids and their families here in Orlando, in Nashville and along road trips to North Carolina. Jesus has blessed me with this opportunity and I am forever thankful for it. I look to Country Music for comfort, joy, and relaxation. It’s cool to be part of the very best fan base ever! I’m so lucky that my passion for these kids has effortlessly paired with my love for this genre and I hope one day to start a program to get these down to earth artists involved in more children’s hospitals around the US.
