Meet Savana Oberts

My daughter Savana, 23, was a junior at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA studying East Asian Studies in May 2011 when her small intestine developed a knot, cut off the blood supply and subsequently died. It immediately had to be removed and now, Savana’s only chance for survival is a small intestine transplant.

I received my transplant on August 8, 2016. I have had complications caused by the post transplant medications, but my overall health is much better. I would like to thank everyone for their support!

I read about your operation in the Key Peninsula News, and felt I had to help as a fellow Key Peninsula resident in a tangible way towards your medical bills. I have a daughter now in college, and can only imagine how this has affected the entire family. But please know that your recovery and health is in my family's prayers and thoughts - God bless you.

I was so honored to be part of the committee planning, preparing and holding the fundraiser for you at Volunteer Park. My biggest honor was finally meeting you in person. You have such a lovely, upbeat personality and immediately captured my heart. My prayers are for your complete healing and recovery, and also includes your lovely family. You are an amazing young lady.

Hi Savana! KPCares is very happy to be holding a fundraiser for you at Volunteer Park on Saturday August 30, 2014, from about 12noon to 5pm, although people will be there early preparing food and setting up. We'll have food and fun and games, for adults and children. It'd be a good place to bring some of your lovely jewelry! Can't wait to see you there.
