Meg was a happy, healthy 7 year old in 2010 when she was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. Her parents and teachers noticed she was not quite herself when playing sports or being active, and she started to complain about hearing in her left ear. After an MRI her brain tumor was discovered and she was rushed to Duke University Medical Center. Despite treatment Meg's tumor progressed (DIPG has no known cure). During an attempt at radiating the tumor, Meg came down with an infection and passed away in January 2011. Her parents Jim and Terri and siblings Jake and Isabella miss her and carry on her gracious spirit by providing gifts to seriously ill children through Meg's Smile.
