This project is to help Meghan, a beautiful 14 year old, who has been diagnosed with ALL, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She is in treatment now, and it is predicted that she will have up to 3 years of chemo before she triumphs over this cruel disease. Meg has a single mom, who currently drives her 3 hours roundtrip almost daily to get treatment, not counting the emergency runs to the hospital when things are not going smoothly. This week was especially difficult, as they had to run to the ER for a high fever, headache and many other complications. There are so many expenses, starting with gas, tolls, car insurance, and normal living costs. Right now, Meg's mom cannot work due to this schedule.
Meg is a gifted honor roll student who can't attend school this year because of the treatment, though she's trying to maintain her grades during all this. All of this creates tremendous anxiety and fear for the future. This little family really needs our help, so that they can pay for living, getting to treatment, auto repairs as they are needed, and other living expenses. There is no money for necessities, never mind things like clothing, outings, or extras. Anything that we can do for Meggie will help her (and her mom) to deal with the stresses and anxieties of this situation, and we hope it will help Meg recover faster. They say positivity is the key to beating this illness, so we have an opportunity to create some of that!
Thank you for helping fund a future for this lovely girl!!
