We are honored and privileged to introduce our fans and followers to our courageous NEGU kid of the week, Savannah! Savannah is a 15 year old “all smiles” kinda girl! After being diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) last October, Savannah has refused to let cancer break her spirit and will not let cancer get in her way of dreaming big and enjoying her teen years.
Like many 15 year old girls, Savannah loves cheerleading, swimming, going to the beach and doing make up and nails with friends. Savannah’s cancer treatments over the past year have been difficult for her. However, despite it all, Savannah courageously keeps her head high, her smile bright and her positive attitude infectious to all those around her. Savannah says, “if I have to go through this, I might as well make the best of it and have a good attitude”.
After having a difficult time getting to remission, Savannah was determined to get back into her normal life at school and with her activities. It was only days after being released from the hospital, and with special release from her oncologist, when Savannah jumped back in with her cheer team to participate in her high school girls’ basketball state championships.
Among Savannah’s list of heroes are God, her mom, her nanny, Ashley Dobbs Vantrease, Lane Goodwin and all of her friends from clinic. Among our list of heros—Savannah!
Please join us in sending Savannah lots of notes of joy, hope and encouragement as we let her know we NEGU for Savannah!
