We see these stories on the news everyday and pray everyone is okay. You hope this never happens to you or someone you love. Then one evening the phone rings and it’s that call.

On Friday September 7th, 2018 my beautiful daughter Megan was involved in a horrific car accident. She was headed home from work heading west; when out of nowhere a young man traveling at an excessive rate of speed heading east lost control of his car. He slid off the road, crossed the divided highway and hit Megan head on. With no time to react her car was decimated. Changing her life and ours forever.

Megan is a wonderful Daughter and such a devoted Mother of two beautiful young Daughters’.  She works very hard to provide for these girls. She is always on the run with gymnastics for both girls, softball for both of them as well as cheerleading for the oldest. Of course they are never at the same time or place. Throw in school and work, it leaves little time for much else.  Now with the accident, Megan is unable to do all of these things she loves to do with her girls.

Megan is in critical condition and in a medically induced coma. She sustained a serious head injury, collapsed lung, lacerated spleen, 7 broken ribs (R+L),2  fractured vertebrae, fractured sternum, multiple broken bones including; left femur, right femur( multiple locations), right tibia/right fibula, multiple bones in her right foot, right humerus /left humerus, left ulna, and left radius. All these injury's will require multiple surgery's.

She will be hospitalized for many months with rehabilitation and a lengthy recovery. As you can imagine the other drivers insurance will not cover all of the costs. There are also the day to day costs for the girls and the monthly bills just don’t stop. We are asking for your thoughts and prayers along with any emotional and financial assistance you can give Megan and her family.

We will continue to keep you updated on Megan's journey to recovery.

Hello Family and Friends, we hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is off to a great new year. We have been very busy. Megan is improving nicely. She was moved on Christmas Eve to a rehabilitation hospital closer to home so that all her family and friends could spend more time with her and help her with her rehabilitation. It is so nice to have her closer to home so we can see her more often. She is doing well with her therapies. She can walk almost 200 feet with her walker before getting tired and needing to rest. She is starting to feed herself with special utensils. All of her wounds are feeling up nicely. She goes back to the orthopedic doctor tomorrow for a followup and hopefully he will be able to tell us when she can have the additional surgery on her arms to help them bend better. Her memory is improving also. She is still have a lot of trouble remembering things but it getting better all the time. That's all we can hope for is that she continues to improve.
We want to thank everyone for the continues prayers and support. Please continue to share her Go Fund Me page with everyone, even if you have already donated we ask that you share her page so others can see it. If you which to send her a card or flowers they can be sent to:
Meadowbrook Rehabilitation Hospital
Megan Mckeehan #313
427 W Main St
Gardner, Ks 66030
She is allowed visitors. If you would like to visit with her please let me know so I can letting you the what the process is for seeing her.
Thank you all again for your continued support and prayers. Please continue to keep the prayers going. We feel that prayer really makes a difference. May God bless you all today and every day.
The one bad thing that I forgot to mention earlier in the post is that we found out that the other driver had no insurance and Megan only carried a small uninsured policy. So that is unfortunate for all the bills that are starting to come in. We are in the process of trying to get her on the Brain Injury Waiver program here in Kansas and also on Medicaid. They are a drawn out process that can take months to do. Hopefully all goes well. Wish us luck on these processes.

Hello family and friends, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for. God has let us hold on to Megan for a while longer. Megan is doing ok. She continues to improve but not as speedily as we had hoped she would but that is ok. As long as she is fighting to get better we will all be fighting right there beside her.
There are 10 levels of recovery on a brain injury. It is known as the Rancho scale, with 10 being the best. Megan is currently at a 4. She is very agitated, uncooperative and upset a lot. This is all part of the stage that she is in. They say she will work her way through this. I sure hope so. It's heartbreaking to see her like this. She does not understand why she has to be in the hospital. She is still has no short term memory so she forgets whether she has even eaten or done her therapy. She believes in her head that she is all back to normal and should be able to walk out of the hospital and resume her life. Unfortunately that is no way near the truth. We are still looking at months of rehab just to teach her to take care of herself and feed herself. Her prognosis for ever living on her own is not very high. She will probably have to live with us for the rest of her life. We don't mind at all of course. We would do anything for her. I know that is not the way she had her life planned out and that makes me sad. Our beautiful independent daughter as lost the choices to control her own live like most of us get to enjoy.
Please continue to keep her in your prayers. We pray the God will heal her completely and speedily. If you have the ability to help her out financially that is much appreciated also. Every donation helps no matter how big or small.
If you have an extra Christmas you could put in the mail to her that would be great also. Lets show her how much she is loved! Send them to her at
Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital
Megan Mckeehan room 150
5401 South St
Lincoln, NE 68506
Thank you all for your kindness. Please continue to share her Go Fund Me page with everyone you know.

Good afternoon family and friends. Megan is doing pretty good. She is at the rehab hospital now and they are working with her to get her brain to start processing everything correctly. She is doing really well with her memory of people. She knows just about everyone that has came to see her or that she has been shown a picture of. She is still having a lot of issues with her short term memory and becomes confused easily when given too many instructions.
She is still bedridden for the most part. She cannot put any weight on her right leg and foot nor on her arms. It makes it difficult for her to do anything for herself. They have started getting her up into a wheelchair a little the past few days. It definitely helps lift her spirits to get out of the bed for awhile. She still does not remember the accident or why she is in the hospital and in so much pain, even though she has been told many times. It is probably her brain's way of dealing with the situation and all the pain for the time being.
A big thank you to all of you for your continued support and prayers at this difficult time. She still has a long journey ahead of her. The rehab hospital cannot give us a definite timeline for her length of stay. It will be a few more months for sure within the hospital setting then hopefully she will graduate to an outpatient rehab. We will just have to see how she progresses.
Please continue to share her story with everyone you know, the more people see it the more prayers she gets. We believe in the power of prayer! Your support and prayers are appreciated and helping her and her daughters.
God Bless you all!
