My Story

Megan Nicole Polhemus 2/19/1992 - 5/13/2010 Megan lost her battle with MPNST (Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor) BUT not without giving up a good fight. Always with a smile on her face no matter how much pain she was enduring.Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
