My Story

Meghan was always a happy, energetic, healthy child. In her Junior year of high school, she was a championship dancer with Trinity Irish dance group in Chicago when she was diagnosed with Wilm's tumor, a rare kidney cancer. After enduring 6 months of chemotherapy her cancer relapsed to her lungs. She had more chemotherapy, radiation, and a double autologous stem cell transplant in early 2007. Inspired by the nurses who treated her, Meghan went to nursing school at Elmhurst College. Unfortunately, the cancer returned after her freshman year. She has been very strong and positive fighting this beast again. Meghan was in several phase I clinical trials and has endured countless experimental treatments. She continued her nursing education until the second semester of her senior year. Meghan was President of the student nurses association on campus, involved in St. Baldricks, Relay for life, Feed My Starving Children Charities, and did several trips for Habitat for Humanity. She wanted to continue to do good things in this world but she was called to heaven on May 6, 2011. Please help in raising funds to find a cure and save other children from this devestating disease!
