Meg Gallagher was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on December 23, 2015. She was 13 years old at the time and we were on vacation on the Oregon Coast. After spending the first month of her treatment in Portland’s Children’s Hospital, she was allowed to come home to Virginia on January 21st only to go back into the hospital with a severe blood clot in her arm. She continued to face complication after complication during her chemotherapy treatment. From fungal meningitis, to pancreatitis, to steroid-induced diabetes, and even appendicitis and a gallbladder attack - if it was a weird side-effect of treatment, she seemed to get it. Meg completed treatment on May 18, 2018 and celebrated with a No More Chemo party! Meg is now about to be 18 and she is very passionate about advocating for Childhood cancer. Meg has her own foundation called Megs Verry Merry Giveback which is going very well! Meg loves to write, sing, and work with kids. Meg is very excited to support Tom on this next Adventure!
