Story

Megan
Megan was a normal Sophomore in high school. Megan was a stand out softball player on her high school team and was being looked at by several colleges. Life was normal, on March 3, 2016 Megan hit a 2 run homer in a softball game to win the game for her team. On March 4th and 5th she played in an away tournament and just started to feel crappy. She was nauseous, she had a headache, and she was really tired. She seemed to feel better after resting on Sunday, but then started throwing up on Monday and stayed home from school. Tuesday morning she went to school so she could play in a district softball game but threw up again while they were getting dressed and then she called me to come get her and missing a softball game was not like Megan. After I picked her up from school I took her straight to the pediatrician thinking maybe she had the flu because some of her friends had just gotten over it. They drew blood and came back and drew a second thing of blood. The doctor came in and told us something was wrong with their machine and I was supposed to take her to our local hospital do run labs. An hour later we were told that Megan had Leukemia and we were transported by ambulance to a hospital 40 miles away and Megan started chemo the very next day. Her official diagnosis is T cell ALL with CNS disease. Megan gets chemo anywhere from 1 to 4 times a week and she has been a trooper through it all. The first thing she said when we were told the bad news was I'm Not Going Out Like This and she is determined to fight until its gone
