A few months after her birth, UK-based Savannah experienced sudden infantile spasm leading to the diagnosis that she would never walk.
But the defiant toddler proved the doctor's wrong, taking her first steps recently with the assistance of a walking aid.
Mom, Laura Dearden, said the first 18 months of little Savannah's life had been a 'roller coaster ride' after her baby's spasms turned out to be a rare brain disorder.
"She's my little fighter, and I couldn't be prouder of her. Hopefully, she will keep defying the odds," says the delighted mom.
The family are hoping to move into a bigger home so they can accommodate Savannah's needs.
