March 4 Meg
Step up to stop melanoma
MARCH 4 MEG's mission is to promote melanoma awareness and raise funds to benefit the establishment of the Meg Moonan Endowment for melanoma research at the Cancer Institute at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. MARCH 4 MEG’s namesake was Evergreen Park resident, Meg (Donovan) Moonan. In August 2010, Meg’s life, and the lives of all who loved her, would change forever when she was diagnosed with melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. During her 19-month battle with Melanoma, Meg endured 2 surgeries, numerous experimental immunotherapy treatments and 16 hospital stays. Meg fiercely battled this horrific disease with a quiet resolve that was an inspiration to us all, diligently researching the latest trials and treatments available. Meg’s focus was always on her family and the never-ceasing prayer that she would live to see a cure. Tragically, on March 30, 2012, Meg lost her battle. Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and throughout the world affecting anyone no matter the age, sex, or race. Promoting awareness can save lives as Melanoma is curable if detected early with over a 90% survival rate. Meg’s family and friends will continue to fight in Meg’s honor with the hope of broadening Melanoma awareness.
