Gold Ribbon Hero Megan C

“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: When Megan was 14 years old, she was diagnosed with a rare form of Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer. They found a immature tatratoma with yolk sac carcinoma arising from her right ovary. It grew so big that it engulfed her right ovary and part of her Fallopian tube. They tried to remove the tumor along with her ovary and Fallopian tube with hopes of removing the cancer along with it. Unfortunately, during an extensive 6 hour surgery they realized the tumor had ruptured and had been leaking into her abodes for over a week. They were going to remove everything giving her a hysterectomy at 14 but decided that she was to young. On May 9 2007 doctors called after testing the tumor to confirm what we had already known. She had cancer. Megan was so strong and agreed to have a study test of chemotherapy that gave her more chemo in a shorter amount of time. She just kept saying she “wanted to save the world, or save someone from going through what she did”. She was treated at A.I Dupont Hospital for Children in Wilmington Delaware. She would go in for treatment for 4 days and then 1 day of liquids. Then she would come home for 3 weeks and then repeat. It was announced she was in remission on July 14, 2007. During her treatment process she held it together so well, I was amazed at how strong my little girl was. Fighting like a super hero. She is now 24 and July 14 of this year will be 10 years in remission. She is struggling with After affects of the chemo but she’s working through them. Unfortunately, she won’t be able to have children naturally which is her life long dream to be a mommy but we are figuring it out some how.” – Dorothy C
