"She always wanted to play a sport, but couldn't do a team thing because they'd have to rely on her and she'd have to miss too much," said Julie Remington, Savannah's mom.

Savannah's in the hospital for a couple of weeks every three or four months for treatment. She gets school at home because of the risk of infection if she were in a big classroom.

Savannah's trips to Tee Town are a chance to interact with others and feel normal. Holley says Savannah's one of her better students.
