COPPERAS COVE, Texas (KWTX) Savanna Lewis of Copperas Cove made it to see her last Christmas.

The 16-year-old continues to fight her battle against a rare form of cancer called Ewings Sarcoma.

Savannah was diagnosed more than a year and a half ago.

One of her dying wishes was to see Christmas.

Savannah's father, David Lewis, posted on Facebook saying it was a rough day for her, but she made it.

He also said she had the biggest smile on her face while opening presents.

He fears she'll be leaving soon, and prays that it will be peacefully.

"Savannah, I love you more than you will ever know," Lewis said.

"When it's your time, please pass peacefully knowing that you changed my life and millions of others in your short time with us."
