Megan Zipperer was a beautiful 25 year old daughter, wife and mother of 3 young children who fought the battle of her life, terminal cancer. If you knew Megan or seen her facebook posts, you are able to see that she has such a positive outlook and is an incredibly sweet person loved by so many. Less then a year ago she was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer and she thought she beat it! The joy was short lived when she returned for her routine 6 month scans. On 10/13/2016, she was told the most dreaded words that anyone could ever imagine hearing, "your cancer has returned, and is also now in your lungs and stomach, and it's terminal." Just like that she was given 6-12months. Less than one year to create a lifetime of memories with her babies, husband, family, and friends. Less than a year to lay beside her soulmate at night. Less than a year to hug and kiss her babies goodnight. Megan passed away just 6 weeks after her final diagnosis ❤️If you are reading this and have not gotten or delayed your papsmear, mammogram, or colonoscopy because you don't think it could happen to you, think again. Do not wait! I know Megan's beautiful story can save lives.
