Since first being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2019, Savanna was a fighter. She battled hard for almost 3 years, never giving up! She was caring, loving, strong, stubborn, and above all loved her children the most. She will truly be missed by all those that knew her.
We would like to thank Dr. Petrie her Oncologist and Dr. Carlson her Radiologist for the care and support they provided through the Northeast Cancer Centre Health Sciences North in Sudbury. A special thank you goes out to Dr. Sears and Dr. Besner for the care and compassion they gave Savanna. Bruce Woods, you were a great friend and support to Savanna for years! Thank you to the compassionate nurses and staff at the Temiskaming Hospital. We appreciate everything you did to make Savanna’s last days comfortable. We would also like to acknowledge the tremendous support that the Community Cancer Care gave.
As per Savanna’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A ceremony celebrating her life will be held at a later date.

Wolf Woman Maheegan kwe
Follow me down the path
I will walk beside you
Guiding and showing you the way
I will not leave you
I will be standing on the path watching you
If you ever feel alone
Close your eyes
You will see six steps of footprints
Two belong to you, four to me
Then you will know, I have not left you.
