Gold Ribbon Hero: Savannah

Spread the love

Meet Savannah, a brave cancer warrior that was taken too soon. Savannah fought a long, hard and very painful battle with Osteosarcoma. Her cancer was found in her left pelvic bone with metastasis occurring in lung nodules, her sacrum, and L5 vertebrae. The aggressive cancer spread to her right femur during traditional therapy and research studies. Unfortunately, Savannah was not a candidate for surgery. 

During her fight she was able to embrace her hair loss and enjoyed using makeup. Savannah was a sassy and strong 14-year-old who turned to her faith to find comfort. An animal lover who rescued over 100 dogs, 7 ducks, and a horse; she even volunteered at the local humane society and various ranches in Arkansas. Her final words were “Love each other, don’t commit suicide, and look towards the Lord.” Savannah passed away on July 20, 2018.
