on behalf of Meghan Nesom
 DANIA, FL
This is our coworker Meghan. Here she is doing two of her favorite things: hugging her little boy and hiking outdoors. She is a nurse here in the pediatric emergency department at JDCH. Before that she worked pediatric oncology and has helped many kids during their fight against cancer. Two weeks ago Meghan was diagnosed with clear cell sarcoma and will be losing her leg above the knee on October 13th.

The nurses here will be throwing fundraisers with donations from local businesses while supplementing the costs out of their own pocket. With the holiday season approaching this is a challenging time to ask for personal leave and financial donations. That said, Meghan is an beautiful human being who has dedicated her life to alleviating the suffering of very sick children while prioritizing her family at every opportunity.

Please help us to make this time a little less painful for Meghan. Help us to alleviate her suffering in whatever small way we can.

We hope by now you were able to catch Meghan on Channel 10's exclusive with Todd Tongen. My friend who hours before was nervous and slightly unsure of herself, spoke like the consummate professional on her CCS diagnosis and handled difficult questions without a hint of hesitation. Her words were powerful. Her message clear: cancer is a tough opponent, but she is armed and ready.

Meghan is fighting for her son, to guide him through the world with her wisdom. She is fighting for her husband, who wants desperately to see his wife well. She is fighting for her parents, hoping they can spend more days enjoying retirement and less worrying about their daughter's health.

While Meghan fights for them we will continue to fight for her. The tiny warriors on the field. Making the journey less arduous when we can. Filling the battlefield with our presence to make it less frightening. Supporting our friend and her family with our love, generosity, and commitment to keep her story alive as we watch her step into the next part of this journey.

Thank you for continuing to share this story with your friends. We read your messages, texts, emails and feel uplifted to know you are out there with us.

Never alone,
#TeamNesom
Looking forward to seeing everyone there

I am swimming in a sea of gratitude. Buoyed by JDCH nurses, secretaries, techs, paramedics, physicians, administration, managers. Guided by local business owners, leaders, friends. Inspired each day to do more by Meghan and her family.

We have done so much in such a short time. That said, there is so much left to do. How do we stay the course? How do we remain motivated after donating and post sharing and feeling the personal heaviness of our sadness for Meghan?

We remember. We remember that this is a battle and we are all tiny soldiers in the war on Sarcoma. We remember that a cancer diagnosis is lonely, and that our continued presence on the battlefield makes it just a little less scary. We remember what we instinctively know, that alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much.

Thank you, everyone.

What an unbelievable 24 hours it has been. An outpouring of love and support has put us halfway to this month's campaign goal. More than 75 people have made online donations totaling over $5,000. Several businesses and vendors have offered their services for an upcoming fundraiser. Local politicians and celebrities have offered their resources to make things happen in record time. Thank you for your donations. Thank you for the uplifting comments. Thank you for continuing to share this campaign until we hit all our goals for Meghan. . #TeamNesom #StrongerThanSarcoma

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/sarcoma-cacner-taking-lives-thousands-people-sarcoma-cancer-needs-be-more-known-and-stopped ----------------------------------------------------------- Sign to fight sarcoma... to get it on the radar of the government... it needs more awareness which can hopefully lead to more research and funding... and hopefully a cure or better treatments! This petition will expire unfortunately but keep hope alive by creating another and spreading the news! Best of luck, I hope you beat that cancer.... and I will continue to spread the petition as a way to continue the fight! And I do apologize that my contribution is not much but I will try my best to continue to provide support against sarcoma!
