Climbing Sparkle Mountain, A Mission For Health

In 2017 I was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer. After spending nearly 2 years working with holistic and naturopathic methods I gave into radiation and surgery. I thought I had reached a cure. Around 10 months after the surgery to remove my tumor another has been found growing in the exact same place. Hearing “the biopsy has tested positive for cancer “ a 2nd time felt like my guts were being ripped out. It’s hard enough knowing the struggle that lay ahead, the heavy decisions, the sacrifice of quality of life but to be welcoming a new year, ANOTHER new year where I won’t be working and supporting myself becomes hard to accept. This is where I ask for your help. I need financial support to keep my bills paid, keep groceries in the fridge and to make sure I can get the medical care I need that insurance will not pay for. I’m currently going through chemo with the next step looking like more surgery. Each day seems to provide me with a little more challenge aka feeling a little more horrible or like I have a hangover. Headache, nausea, upset stomach... This sucks I’ve chosen “Climbing Sparkle Mountain “ as the title for this because this is a long slow journey. I have no idea what’s around each corner. Moving forward and marching on through exhaustion is part of the daily. And just when you think you’re at the top you realize you have much more to climb. I will find joy in the struggle, I will find comfort in my journey and I will never stop trying to have a good time, even in rough conditions. This mountain is big and at times scares me. It is my mountain though and I will keep climbing ‍♀️ Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Showing your support can be done in many ways. 1. Donate to gofundme- it’s easy and you’re already here 2. Donate through Venmo @ Megan-Hager-1 3. Donate through PayPal @ hagermegan77@gmail.com 4. Send a love letter or care package through the mail @ Megan Hager P.O. Box 14092 Santa Rosa, CA 95402 5. SHARE THIS LINK! Sharing my story on social media, with friends and family, with co-workers and with your social meet-up groups has created so much success with fundraising in the past! The word of mouth is powerful and it lets people know who and how they can help. Sharing this is a easy and effective way to contribute to my mission. Plus I see it and it puts a smile on my face to see folks looking out for me and keeping the momentum rolling. Putting up with cancer isn’t easy. Not having to think about how I’m going to keep my bills paid takes an elephant off my chest, a monkey off my back and it helps me rest my body and mind. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me that peace. XXOO ✨
