My name is Savannah Bowen and I am 8 years old. This is my story.

 

I love art, video games and animals. I live with my mom, Valerie and my three cats Buddy, Milo and Knucky. On Halloween, I went with my aunt, Damarie to the County Fair and bumped my chest on one of the rides. My mom took me to the emergency room the next day. They took a chest x-ray and told her that I had a rib contusion and had to follow up with my primary doctor.

 

We saw my doctor about a week later and he suspected it was not a contusion and referred us to see a surgeon at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital. After doing many diagnostic tests and chest biopsy, I was diagnosed with Stage III B Cell Lymphoma Cancer. This cancer affects the immune system.

I recently underwent a spinal tap with initial chemotherapy to prevent brain damage, a bone marrow biopsy to rule out leukemia, another biopsy of the cancer tissue that covers the entire right chest wall, and a temporary port was installed in my chest for future chemotherapy. I was unable to walk for a short period and required 3 doses of morphine due to severe pain. As of 12/10/14, I am still in the hospital but improving from the surgeries.

I am going to need chemotherapy and other extensive treatment in order to save my life.

The cancer treatment is very expensive and my mom needs a lot of help to pay for all the medical bills. Please help with any donations, no amount is too small.

Thank you for your support and remember a prayer goes very far.

With love,

Savannah Bowen
