On Wednesday the family organized a lemonade stand in a parking lot near the intersection of Plainfield and Fuller Avenue to raise money for medical expenses they will need to cover as Savannah recovers and eventually comes home. “She’s a fighter. I mean, I couldn’t imagine what she’s doing,” her dad said. “The kids decided that they would like to do something for their sister,” her father explained Wednesday.
“Obviously terrifying as a parent.” “It was hit and miss for a while,” Savannah’s father Randall Edgerly told FOX 17 Wednesday.
While the 8-year-old is making incredible progress in her recovery, her family is eager to have her come home. **You can donate to the family’s GoFundMe fundraiser HERE**
“I just want everybody to know that she’s a really, really loving sister and that they should try to help her out.” Her parents thank everyone who has supported them and shared positive thoughts throughout the entire difficult process. “She loves bunnies, and she’s a really strong and caring sister. I’m just really lucky that she’s living right now,” Savannah’s sister Ashlyn told FOX 17.
Savannah’s sister Ashlyn even celebrated her 10th birthday on Wednesday, deciding to spend the day raising money instead of celebrating without her sister by her side. “And they just kind of didn’t want to sit around and do nothing, while Savannah was doing all the fighting.”
