Why Megan wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I want them to stay strong and continue the battle. This hits home for me because when my little cousin Maggie was 2 she had a brain tumor. It was very hard to watch her go through so much at such a young age. We didn’t know what would happen, but thankfully she made it. She has been 5 years tumor free so far. This is why I want to be a voice.
