Today’s Helping Hero: Savanna

Savanna is doing a board game drive to stock the Room of Possibilities on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. The BMT unit treats mostly adult patients. Connor's Heroes established the Room of Possibilities when we realized that families need a different environment than most of the adult patients. The Room of Possibilities is a space for our families to play, read and be together. Savanna was diagnosed with leukemia at age 8 in 2014. She underwent months of chemo, radiation and then a bone marrow transplant. (Her donor was her older brother, Asher.) She knows what it is like to be a kid on the adult unit and "living" in the hospital. You can purchase games off of her Target Wish List. Way to go Savanna!
