Saving Savannah Tassone

February 17, 2012

A local child is undergoing skin grafts after an accident left her with fourth degree burns. Savannah Tassone, a third grader at Poteau Primary School and daughter of Erin and Joel Billy was playing with a friend on January 13 when the accident happened. the two young girls had come across a candle and a can of gasoline. Nine year old Savannah received fourth degree burns on your right leg and foot. Savannah was taken to the Alexander Burn Center at Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa where her first skin graft was performed, but unfortunately Savannah's wounds became infected so she was then transferred to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston, Texas. Doctors now say the new skin graft has been a complete success. Savannah's prognosis looks great and though she will require six to eight months of rehabilitation and therapy, Savannah will be fine.
On Sunday, February 19, the family will travel back to Galveston for more therapy.
If you would like to help this local family in their time of need, an account has been opened at The Community State Bank in the name of Savannah Tassone.

poor child! where were her parents when this happened?
she is a girl, it must be a double disaster for her
i am really glad she is doing better.
