Meghan is a communications consultant and is married to Patrick. She has 3 boys: JP (6), Connor (4), and Gavin (2). Meghan was first diagnosed on May 23, 2012, age 30, with stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma (breast cancer), when she was 7 months pregnant with her 3rd son, Gavin. She found a lump in her breast. Her doctor thought it was hormones from the pregnancy, but eventually had it biopsied and she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. On July 15, 2014, she had just turned 33 and was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (stage 4), the same breast cancer she was treated for, and it had returned to her lymph nodes and in her bones. It is not in any major organs at this point, which is promising. At this point, she will be on treatment for the rest of her life, but she and her doctors are hopeful that this treatment plan will be effective and she will live a very long happy life.
