Savana Coffman cheerleader heart transplant

The WILMINGTON (OH) NEWS-JOURNAL reports that Coldwater defeated Clinton-Massie 63-14 in Ohio high school playoff action. But before the game, Coldwater showed their warm hearts, as the Cavaliers presented a $15,000 check to the family of Savana Coffman.The 15-year-old Clinton-Massie cheerleader has been in the hospital since November 14, when she underwent a heart transplant. Learning that Savana’s family had no insurance, Coldwater students helped raise thousands of dollars to pay for her medical expenses.

The CINCINNATI ENQUIRER adds that Savana’s mother, Tabby, also received the same transplant over a dozen years ago.

With this show of generosity, hearts are beating strong for mother, daughter, and the Coldwater community.
