Strangers Grant Dying Mother’s Final Wish to Make Happy Memory With Her Daughter


In the midst of tragedy, complete strangers are helping a 19-year-old mother fulfill her dying wish.

Savannah Cashman Morgan, of Nashville, Tennessee, has Stage 4 ovarian cancer. Her doctors have told her she only has a few weeks left to live, according to her GoFundMe page.

With the little time she has left, she wants to make memories with her 4-year-old daughter, Hannah. Her biggest wish is to take Hannah to Disney World — and thanks to the donations of kind strangers, it will soon be a reality.

I want her to have something from me in the future when I’m not there,” Morgan told WFLA 8. “So she doesn’t think I’ve abandoned her.”

In just one week, Morgan’s GoFundMe page reached it’s goal of $10,000 and is currently at nearly $11,000 and climbing.
