Savanna's Story

Savanna was born June 2010 with not one but two rare heart defects HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrom) and TGA (Tranposition of the Great Arteries). She has had two open heart surgeries and other surgeries with a total of 6 all before the age of 1 and all done at doernbechers. The support from all the doctors and nurses we got through every little bump that Savanna could throw at us. Even though we have been to Doernbechers alot in the past two years we still seem to find the support that we need. We are very thankful for what they have done for Savanna. Today Savanna is just a normal happy two year old that seems to love everyone she meets.
