When Megan was 12 years old she lost her mother to breast cancer. Five years later she was diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer. She underwent surgery and had daily chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Then, at the age of 22 Megan was diagnosed with breast cancer, which led to more chemotherapy and a double mastectomy.
She has a strong and positive attitude that inspires others to join with her to help make a difference. Megan firmly believes that she has survived for a reason and that it is to guide others through their own experience with serious illnesses.Her outlook on life, and the way she is able to turn her experience into a positive, is a true inspiration for others to take action.
