As you may or may not know, one of our good friends was hit with some bad news recently. Meghan Evans (Mevans) was diagnosed with stage 2A Hodgkin's Lymphoma a few weeks ago. They caught it early and the outlook is positive but she has a tough six month battle with Chemotherapy ahead of her.
Here's the good news - She's the biggest badass on the planet. If you've ever been to a Boston sporting event with her, you know she's been picking fights with people she has no business picking fights with for years. Cancer is just the next loud-mouth Jet's fan sitting within shouting distance at the Pats game.
She also has a hell of a family and support system by her side. A support system that has given her strict orders to focus on kicking cancer's ass while we worry about the money thing. A number of us have signed up for various events to raise money. This is where you come into play. We're asking for a little help raising funds so she can stay focused.
A few of us will be running the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Nashville this April, which is co-sponsored by St. Jude's Children's Hospital. The first $500 raised is going towards St. Jude's to make it a little easier for the kiddos in the same boat as Mevans. The rest will go towards medical bills and a huge bottle of Jameson she will promptly take down when she's cleared.
