When tragedy knocks at the door, it’s an emotional moment, especially when it impacts the most vulnerable of us.

Junior Sahvannah Evans died in her sleep on Aug. 16 after a long bout with debilitating conditions. The 16-year-old fought cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture.
