Savannah is an empathetic and down-to-earth 16-year-old whose happy place is the beach. She has a little sister, Shelby, who painted with her at the Hero Art Sessions. Savannah enjoys cheerleading and lacrosse. She was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic lymphoma in 2017. Savannah hopes to be a nurse practitioner in pediatric oncology. And while she is a hero, she recognizes two heroes who impacted her life: Dr. Christina Wiedl and Nurse Kathy Tofferi.
