Four years ago, at the age of 2 1/2 Morgan was diagnosed with a brainstem tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG) and was given only two years to live. She completed 6 weeks of radiation at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and now, remains stable. Since there is no known cure for the disease, Morgan and her family remain dedicated to this cause by helping to raise awareness and donations.
Morgan’s older sister, Hunter, is helping to lead the charge in the battle against childhood cancer by participating in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer on Saturday, September 26, which begins at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip. With the event just over a week away, any donations are very much appreciated to help Hunter reach her goal and support her little sister and other children battling cancer.
If you would like to participate or make a donation to the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, please visit the Helping Hands 4 Morgan page. To learn more about the incredible journey and story of these two sisters and their family, visit the Helping Hands 4 Morgan Facebook page. Your donations are greatly appreciated and we thank you for your support!
