Megan's family and friends are raising money to help with expenses related to her upcoming bone marrow transplant and recovery. Thank you!

Megan loves her dogs, mock trial, dancing and 4-H. On Feb. 21, 2014, just a week after her 12th birthday, Megan was diagnosed with T-Cell ALL Leukemia. She has been undergoing treatments at Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines. On June 30, Megan started the next phase of her treatment at the University of Minnesota. She received a bone marrow transplant with bone marrow donated by her little brother, Noah. Megan and her family will be living away from home in Minneapolis for at least three to six months while Megan recovers from the transplant.

In addition to mounting medical expenses and living expenses while they are in Minneapolis, there are some changes that need to be made to Megan's home so she can safely continue her recovery when she returns to Des Moines. Every donation will help Megan and her family with this journey toward her renewed health. We appreciate all contributions, prayers and well-wishes. You are a part of Megan's team and we thank you!

Megan's friends and family have generously donated some handmade thank you gifts - we'll be randomly picking names from our donor list so we can share some of the love that we've been feeling.
