My sister in law Megan is one of the most amazing women I have the honor of knowing.  Megan bravely battled breast  cancer 5 years ago and beat it.  She did this while working full time and raising her two wonderful children Jake and Tori who are now 10 and 12.  She was just given the all clear this past month.  Sadly recently Megan started to feel very fatigued and dizzy and on Thursday she was diagnosed with a very large brain tumor.  As with everything else Megan accepted this diagnosis with her typical good humor, naming the tumor "Arnold" and vowing again to beat this.  Megan underwent major surgery today and at this point the doctors are optimistic that this is all treatable.  However Megan will be out of work for the rest of the school year and now again she and Erik will be faced with enormous medical bills.  Megan will require rehab and an extended recovery time.  She has always been a determined individual who has demonstrated selflessness in more ways than one. However, during this difficult and uncertain journey, she will require every amount of help that she can receive. We are raising money to help support them while she is out of work and take some of the financial burden and worry off of them so they can just focus on healing.  Thank you all for all of your prayers, healing thoughts and well wishes.  We all deeply appreciate each and every one of you for all of your support.

Sorry it has been so long since we updated!! As most of you know Megan has been home for a little over a week and doing so well!!! We got good news at the neuro-oncologist and just want to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you who have supported Megan and her family!! These are Megan's two most recent updates....


Today is the day!! Just waiting for Erik and the kids to arrive and the discharge folks - it's going to be a party!!

I am humbled by the love and support we've received over the past month from everyone near and far. Your support has really helped pull all four of us through this ridiculous ordeal. And I want to thank everyone for the meals and help with the kids and donations to our gofundme page and continued help once I'm home from the hospital. I'm looking forward to relaxing this summer and visiting with many of you.
Have a great Saturday! I know I will be!!


One week home in the books and I am feeling great! It's so nice getting back to my normal life as much as I can! (And no more hospital food!!) Best news of the week is that additional treatment (chemo or radiation) are not recommended at this time. The doctors are going to monitor me closely for now. I'm good with that option! Chemo sucks (been there, done that) and radiation is no walk in the park (again, been there, done that)!
I am, again, so extremely grateful for the love and support we have received over the past month and I know this isn't going to be over anytime soon

Megan is improving a little every day!! We are again hoping that the drain removal is successful tomorrow so please keep those healing prayers and thoughts coming. Megan has been slowing increasing her walking and yesterday staff had a hard time keeping up with her!! Love to all of you, your support is so appreciated by Megan and the entire family.
