This is the Savana Sky Heart Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for the treatment and care of Savana not covered otherwise.

Hello, My name is Savana Sky. I am 29 months old. I was born with a congentical heart defect called ALCAPA which stands for Anomalous Left Coronanry Artery arising from the Pulmonary Artery syndrome. Also known as Bland-White-Garland syndrome.

I was born with this. I was very lucky to survive long enough for the doctor's to correctly diagnose me. When I was little, I was always so much more sicker than my twin sister Trinity. That's right I am a twin. My mom kept taking me to the doctor cause she said that I wasn't healthly. Thankfully someone listened to my mommy's instinct and found out why I was always so sick.

On August 18th 2010 I had my first open heart surgery. I was 18 months old. That surgery was really scary for my mommy and my sisters. I was able to pull through and get a little better than I was before I had the surgery. But I had to keep visiting all these doctors and at my 6 month post open heart surgery check up, the doctor gave us the bad news.

My heart was too damaged. It was broken. My mommy was really sad and scared. But the doctor said we still have hope. We can place you on a waiting list for a new heart. So we waited........

On October 11th 2011 we got the call.
This call forever changed my life. Somewhere there is an amazing family that chose the gift of life. Because of this random act of unselfishness I have an angel that walks among me now. I am eternally grateful as well as my family.

I hope you can help my family. I really want my mom to see me recover and get better. I know she has to work to pay the bills but I need her here with me. I have so much to worry about with my new heart and getting better I just ask for any help you can give to help me and my sisters so we can focus on my journey to recovery.
