On February 4,2008, Morgan underwent surgery to remove the tumor, she lost her kidney and adrenal gland in the process. Her MIBG scan on February 27th, was negative for neuroblastoma! Morgan is now entering her 7thround of chemotherapy and getting ready for a stem cell transplant on about March 17 at Yale Children's Hospital. She will then go to SK to get the 3F8 antibody as well as undergo radiation therapy. Morgan has a twin brother,Luke and an 4 year old brother named Jake. Morgan likes to listen to music and watch TV.
