Savannah's WHOLE Health

Hello friends! I am here sharing a great need for sweet Savannah. She is a very sweet friend of mine, who never complains, and is always giving to others. If you know Savannah, you know she’s the most humble person EVER and that’s why we need to help her!

Savannah has been battling chronic health issues since she was 13 years old, forcing her to graduate from high school at the age of 15. She is currently beginning her third year of college, doing it all from home. Her health doesn’t allow her to leave the house very often, except for doctors appointments.
Savannah has been diagnosed with Endometriosis causing her chronic and crippling pain and she has undergone four surgeries for this. In August 2017, Savannah was diagnosed with a rare disease called Gastroparesis, which paralyzes her stomach and intestines and is slowly starving her to death, regardless of how much she eats and the diet plan she is on. She also has Celiac disease and internal cystitis as a result of complications from all of her other diseases. She is in so much CONSTANT pain all over her body, it’s ridiculous.

Sweet Savannah has had to adopt routines, medications, rules, and much more into her daily life to ensure that she is in the least amount of pain and is not injuring herself.
STILL IN ALL OF THAT, SHE NEVER COMPLAINS!

"On Friday, May 26th, I had my most recent surgery complete with a hyrdo distention of my bladder, over 100 units of Botox injections, steroid injections, and more. On May 27th, I began chemo pills from the comfort of my own home. I am exhausted, worn down, and can barely keep up with the correct eating habits, much less sleeping habits, and taking each and every pill needed each day. I spend the majority of my time hanging out on my couch or in my bed, but I am thankful I am able to be at home at this point! In August, 2017, I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis and have now added another harsh medication to the list of treatments I am currently on. My body is giving out and we can barely afford my whole foods, supplements, vitamins, and more, much less our hospital bills and regular ole' monthly bills. I am so thankful for each and every one of you who keeps us in your prayers and has donated any amount of money or support!”

Savannah knows that in order to heal in the best way possible she needs the best care. Her dream would be to go to a Holistic Integrative Clinic where she would receive the very best care possible but this is where the gofundme comes in. LET’S GET HER THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE! This need is only one of a few.

Her sweet mama is a single mom and has been out of work for about a month now and will continue missing work often to stay home with Savannah on the days when she cannot be left alone, and to get her to and from doctors appointments since Savannah cannot even drive in her condition. In addition to this hardship that they are currently facing, when Savannah turned 18 in August, her father cut all financial, and emotional, support, which leaves Mimi and Savannah dealing with an even harder financial situation from here on out!

Everything is just adding up friends, the medical bills, eating whole, organic foods and getting the supplements necessary to keep her alive and somewhat thriving!

Goals:
$2,000 in current hospital bills, more to come!
They are in need of a used, reliable car that can them Savannah to her appointments. Their current vehicle breaks down often and needs to be towed.
$3000 for good supplements, food and oils because this will be INSTRUMENTAL in recovery!
$5,000 to go toward her treatment a Holistic Treatment Center, we are currently investigating options in California and outside.

It would be such a gift to raise enough to pay off the mountain of medical bills that are piling up, help with a reliable vehicle to get her to her appointments and to fully fund Savannah's treatment a Holistic Integrative Clinic. She is still researching the best clinic for her treatment. We will keep this page updated!!!

Along with financial support, can you all join in my praying for Savannah. I pray her has a whole health recovery!!! She is doing her best with healthy foods, essential oils, and so much more to take care of her health!
