Valerie Lucas Underwood  BURBANK, CA
As you are all aware, my daughter, Savannah Underwood, was involved in a horrific car accident that killed 5 of her friends. Miraculously, Savannah was the sole survivor. Although we are all so grateful for her survival, we are also devastated by the loss of her 5 friends. Savannah is on the road to recovery both physically and mentally, and we know it will be a long time before she is fully healed. We are already anticipating extraordinary medical bills coming our way, so any donation will be greatly appreciated. Savannah is loved my many and we are so blessed to still have her in our lives.

Savannah was spared by God for a reason, and she knows that. Her mind is already working on what she will do with this gift of life. She is a beautiful person with an amazing soul.

God bless the 5 new angels in Heaven!

Update 7

It's been a month since my last update. Savannah is recovering nicely. She is able to walk now with crutches. Her bones are starting to fuse back together which is great news! We are starting to receive the medical bills in the mail and wow, they are very overwhelming! I work in the health insurance industry and anticipated them to be high, but not nearly as what they actually are! The donations we've received will help and we are truly grateful for every single donation that we have received!
Thank you, Thank you!!
Love, Valerie, Savannah & Family

Yay! We met our goal! We are so happy to have so many people reach out and show the love to Savannah and my family. It's still going to be a long road for her since she will have to have a total hip replacement, so keep sharing her link! The more support the better!
WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

We got some not so great news today from the orthopedic surgeon at Stanford. He said he is almost certain she will need a total hip replacement within the next 3 months to a year, and multiple replacements as she continues to age. This is quite upsetting because we thought for sure she would heal just fine and not have anymore issues. Although we are so grateful for her life, the last thing she needs is to have to have a hip replacement at the age of 18 years old. She did not ask for this to happen to her and she is just devastated. We will know more in 6 weeks at her next appointment, but today did not go as we had hoped. Please keep Savannah in your prayers. We are feeling a bit defeated today. :(
