My name is Savannah Cooper, I am a chronic illness warrior.
At 7 years old I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Tethered Cord Syndrome. For the last seven years I have had chronic kidney infections--over 70 of them. I have traveled to many different hospitals and physicians hoping to find some answers. In these past five years I have had 7 PICC Lines, a port placed, lost my hair and completed every test and procedure possible.
I am passionate about advocating for the chronically ill community. By sharing my story and encouraging people to be kind and accepting, I help others feel empowered. Speaking to young students keeps me inspired. I love speaking at schools, events and conferences!
I am a current college student majoring in Musical Theatre, and pursuing my dreams of being on Broadway. Follow me on Instagram: @savvy_sc & @savstrong_org to see more of my journey!
