For over a decade, Meagan has suffered a myriad of unexplained symptoms, including weight gain, exhaustion, stretch marks, buffalo hump, and worst of all, extreme all-over body pain. Her physician feels that these symptoms, as well as her lab results, point to the little-known, rare disease: cyclical Cushing's Syndrome. Unfortunately, Cushing's is very difficult to diagnose; so difficult in fact, that very few doctors have the know how and tools to do so. As a result, Meagan is gearing up to travel to a Cushing's specialist in Los Angeles for proper testing and treatment.

That's where we -- her friends and family -- come in! Please make a monetary donation if you can. Meagan has also asked for healing prayers and thoughts.

Meagan is a wonderful and loving friend, wife and mother of 3.

Sadly, her life has been severely impacted by her illness. She dreams of the day when she can do the many things she's had to give up. She hopes to go back to school. Mostly, though, she just wants to have the energy to be an involved and playful mother for her three beautiful children.

Please take the time to watch the video posted to the left. It is the story of another Cushing's patient; a story very similar to Meagan's. It also features Dr. Friedman, the doctor Meagan is hoping to see.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Meagan's story and learn a little about this rare but terrible disease.
