PORTLAND, Ore. - When we first met professional cuddler Samantha Hess two months ago, she had a lot of passion and very little profit.
At the time she told NBC's Portland, Oregon affiliate KGW, "I'm definitely not surviving off of this but I hope to at some point."
It appears that "some point" is now.
"It's been crazy. Since November, it's been non-stop. Thousands and thousands of emails. Hundreds of customers. It's more than I can handle," Hess says.
