    From NICU to College: Savannah Tucker's Story

    Savannah Tucker was born with a rare skull deformity called craniosynostosis, also known as clover leaf skull. At just days old, she was airlifted from West Virginia to UVA for care.

    Over the next several years, Savannah underwent over 20 surgeries. Further diagnosed with additional conditions including hydrocephalus, stroke and cerebral palsy, her initial prognosis was grim; doctors warned her family that she might not ever be able to walk.  

    Savannah says she has grown up at UVA, receiving care from a team of doctors from neurosciences, plastic surgery and orthopedics.
