We do it for the kids, meet them!
At only 14 months old, Savanna has spent much of her life in the hospital. Soon after her premature birth, Savanna was diagnosed with pyloric stenosis, a condition that required stomach surgery. A few months later, she underwent open heart surgery to repair a congenital heart defect. While recovering, Savanna developed a serious respiratory virus that was treated successfully, thanks to UVA Children’s Hospital’s unique heart-lung breathing machine. Today, Savanna is doing well, exploring her world as a happy, healthy toddler.
