Meet 20-year-old Savannah. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. This courageous girl has endured severe surgeries. She fights through frightening seizures that occur at any moment. She uses a gait trainer to walk. Savannah has many other trials, but she remains an upbeat girl.
Savannah has a number of pastimes. She likes Disney movies and music. She cannot read but enjoys holding books and looking at their pictures. Savannah attends school and cannot wait for gym class where she plays basketball. She and her family visit theme parks such as SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. Savannah, most of all, is strong-willed and works hard to be independent. Savannah can spend 10 minutes on simple tasks, such as buckling herself into a car, but she gets the job done. She has a great sense of humor and a snappy comeback to fit every occasion. Savannah’s greatest comeback, however, is fighting her difficult illness. She does it with a beautiful smile, too. Savannah is our inspiration.
Savannah needed an adaptive bicycle to improve her leg strength, stamina, and balance. Savannah was riding a regular bike many years ago when she was attacked by a seizure. She was too frightened to try riding again. Savannah is now eager to use an adaptive bicycle for exercise and play. With the Help of Grants through M Anderson and the White Family Foundation, we were able to help Savannah obtain her Adaptive Bicycle!
