It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful brightest light, Savanna Alivia Lynn Gervais. Savanna was born April 11,2018; she was our dream come true. Our perfect baby girl.  January 15, 2020, our world crashed when we learned she had an aggressive form of cancer and she fought relentlessly for almost 3 years.  On November 2, 2022, we were informed her cancer was back with a vengeance and she was terminal.  We moved to hospice care for 17 days until she succumbed to her disease on November 19, 2022, at 4:15am with Mommy, Daddy, her siblings Emma-Lee, Brendon (Toni) and Riley (Emma), as well as her Auntie Carol and Auntie Sheena by her side.  She leaves behind so much family, Mom, Dad, Siblings', Grandparents and a whole community of people who loved her and admired her strength and courage.  Savanna taught us all how to live life to the fullest and appreciate the little things. In lieu of flowers, we appreciate any donations made to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.  Just weeks before we learned Savanna was terminal, she did the “Small Is Mighty” Campaign with the BCCHF, a charity that is very near and dear to our hearts!  We love you Nana Bear, always and forever to the moon & back! You will always be our sunshine.

Savanna was such a big part of my life. She was wise,brave,and full of love. Being her big cousin was the biggest honour and there’s not a day that doesn’t go by that I don’t think of her. Everywhere I go now I see a unicorn and a pink sky and I think of you.She always had a smile on her face and knew how to light up a room. I promise Savanna that I will always look out for your siblings and especially your momma. There’s a hole in my heart without you around but I know we will meet again one day my little love. 🤍

Praying for all especially mama’s heart. Praying for a cure.
Sending love, from a stranger♥️

Small but Strong… Small but Mighty! Savanna was the very spirit of a true warrior! And she was supported by a truly amazing family! Your love and strength humble me. One day we will win this terrible war. I’m just so sorry it didn’t come in time for your sweet little peanut.

I only had the privilege of meeting sweet Savanna once during her brother’s graduation. She definitely was a ray of sunshine. My heart hurts for her parents, siblings, other relatives, and many in our community. She will never be forgotten.

I met little savanna when my 1 month old was getting chemo. Her and rylie would roll by our room in their wagons, always giggling with there stuffies and pink iPads. I always thought they were just the cutestest duo ever! (I'm pretty sure I gave either savanna or rylie a big unicorn balloon when we met in the elevator, she was so excited, how could I not give it too her)
My heart breaks hearing this news, we followed savanna/rylies stories after we left everyday💔
My condolences to your family and friends

🌟 RIP beautiful babe 🌟

I didn't meet Savanna (other then she was in her moms tummy when I met her mom as she was pregnant with Savanna who was due very soon).
I felt an instant connection with Krista, she had mentioned her upcoming birthday and we realized we are both Aquarians!
Krista was such a genuine person; her transparency was endearingly warm as she shared her joy to be welcoming her baby soon!
We chatted so easily it was like I knew her even though I didnt. Afterwards we friend requested each other online and so I followed along with her life. I also realized how many friends we had in common and was again assured as to the reason I felt like I had known her already when we first met.
Following along when they found out about Savannas diagnosis and how they chose to enter into the unknown with such passion for love & family was inspiring.
The day she announced Savannas passing I cried along with so many others. Your angel had to leave her earthly body with her unicorn guardian angel.
I send my deepest condolences for you & your families loss. Her memory will live on in all of our hearts & will always donate to B.C Children's Hospital in her honor.

Such a sweet girl I only met a couple of times over the years , but her smile was infectious. Norm and Krista thank you for sharing your story with me whenever I saw you. I too am proud of our community for really showing compassion and love for this little Angel and your family.

I have not had the privilege to meet sweet Savanna in person but u did have the honour to watch her grow up on Facebook with my little fella and many other April 2018 babies. Our group is unlike any other and I feel like we are all family. When I learned of Savanna’s diagnosis in 2020 I was devastated for Krista and her family. And when I learned of her passing in November I stood in my kitchen and cried, along with many others across the country. I feel like our group lost a piece of our family. Krista you and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Xo

Even those of us who only knew Savannah from afar have been impacted forever by her grace, courage, and beauty. It’s my personal belief that nothing so insignificant as death can come between those who truly love one another. Sending all our love.

I had the privilege of meeting Savanna and her family by being one of her princess friends. We would have conversations that usually ended in laughter. She showed me what the true meanings of strength, bravery and courage are.
She will always hold a place in my heart. ♥️
