In August of 2007, Meghan was diagnosed with Edwin’s sarcoma, which is a tumor that grows in the bone and soft tissues. Soon after her diagnosis, Meghan began undergoing extremely aggressive chemotherapy treatments. Meghan has been in and out of the hospital frequently and must be monitored carefully by her doctors.
When a limousine rolled up to her front door to take both her and her mom to the South Park Mall for her day of shopping, Meghan knew her wish was being granted. “It was awesome,” she said.
“I got some roller blades I had been wanting and some iTunes gift cards,” said Meghan. She picked out everything she wanted and more. A nice surprise came in the discovery that she could use the gift cards she had received at stores outside of the mall as well! This revelation meant that she could have an even wider variety of items to choose from with her remaining money! “I can’t wait to buy a bunch of Converse [shoes],” said Meghan. “It’s like a never ending shopping spree.”
