Get Sav to USA for Treatment



My name is Leigh and I am friends with Savannah and her Mum Hayley. Hayley is a bit of a techniphobe so I have set this up for her using my my own words. Hayley and Sav will do any further updates and manage the campaign from here on. Savannah is a 18 year old girl from Widnes in the North West of the UK.  Firstly, I need to explain how amazing Sav is! Not only is she one of the most beautiful girls I have ever known, this is definitely not skin deep. She is the kindest, most caring, generous, understanding, open minded, intelligent, compassionate young woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and I am proud to call her my friend. Savannah suffered with chronic pain all over her body and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. This was a misdiagnosis and Sav actually has Lyme Disease from a tick bite!! In January 2017 Sav was hospitalised after suffering terrible seizures. She lost her speech and partially paralysed. She got through it like the fighter that she is but has been subject to these seizures ever since. The next paragraph is copied and pasted from Savannah's Mum Hayley's, most recent Facebook post ...  "Finally getting my baby home today after the longest hardest week ever!!! Unfortunately the NHS are not going to fund this lifethreatening disease. LYME DISEASE. Just from one bite abroad, its caused bacteria to damage the organs, gut, tissues, and finally small calcifactions on the brain hence all her seizures!!! Spent thousands on private care just to find whats was actually happening with Savs body. We now have diagnosis but NHS are running away from the results. We've been told by a top 'private doctor' to get Sav to America sooner than later. I pray people who know us will try and help us with some ideas how to raise money to to get her there. Ha being a typical teenager however she didnt want a go fund me page 'how embarrasing' but there is no time for that anymore unfortunately So that is the situation as of today (29.03.2018) and we NEED to get Sav that treatment.  Sav is the kind of girl who grows up and changes the world, she has so much potential and life ahead of her and she deserves the chance to fight and have a normal, healthy life!  Please help if you can Thank you
