Savannah's Dragon Slaying Fund

On September 7, 2017, 23 days before her 18th birthday Savannah was diagonised with Acute Myloid Leukemia.  Spending her senior year fighting cancer was certainly not in her plans, but she has been an inspiration to all.  She has been through 2 sets of chemo since September at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, AR with one more prior to her upcoming Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).

She will undergo her BMT at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas beginning the first of the year.  This 5 month process will be the most challenging of the treatment - not just the physical implications on Savannah, but on the family with the travel to and from Houston and Bentonville, AR.  Mason will continue his junior year at Bentonville High School so we will incur significant travel expenses in addition to the medical craziness.

Many have asked how they can help or be of service.  Your gift financially, either  through this site, or through gift cards to help defray the expenses will be a huge blessing to all of us.  We are trusting God for healing, strength, and resouces.  For those who have already blessed us with your gifts, Melissa and I are tremendously humbled and grateful for your generousity and kindness. 

Savannah is, and will continue, to swing away and fight her dragon.  We look forward to the day she ultimately slays her dragon.  Through her positive, fighting spirit and God's continued presence she will defeat it!
