Support Megan Donovan Swonger in her Fight Against B-Cell Lymphoma

Most of you know that Megan Donovan and Travis Swonger got married and bought a home in Linthicum, Maryland last summer. Meg is a Physician Assistant in the Internal Medicine Department at Mercy Hospital, and Travis is a firefighter.

Megan was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins B-cell lymphoma in late August and started chemotherapy just a few days later. She is being treated at Mercy Hospital where her friends and colleagues have surrounded her with support. Meg and Travis’ family and friends are also helping and loving them through this journey.

Megan's treatment plan is six rounds of chemotherapy. She'll have five days of continuous infusion chemo in the hospital followed by sixteen days at home with lots of trips to the outpatient clinic for blood work and hydration. She will be out of work until at least February 2013. Although the uncertainty, the physical effects, and the life-changing nature of cancer are scary, Megan is brave, strong, and determined.

We thought you might want to support Meg and Travis by giving a donation and/or writing a message on this site. Friends of Meg's also plan to host a fundraising event in Baltimore in November. Thoughts, prayers, and hugs are so important to Megan and Travis as they go down this unfamiliar road; we also hope to relieve some of the stress of ongoing medical bills. 

And/or, if you live in town and are interested in preparing a meal for Megan and Travis, you can sign up and learn more about what they need here: http://www.takethemameal.com/meals.php?t=AEAX0649.  The last name look up is Donovan, and the password is 5138.

They will be so grateful for any support you would like to give.
