Who was Megan Maryanski?
Megan Maryanski’s Cancer Journey: Explained
Megan’s Boyfriend raising funds for her Girlfriend
Justin Meinert My name is Justin Meinert and this is the story of my girlfriend; Megan Maryanski. In January 2018, Megan was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. Since she is 19, Megan cannot receive Make-A-Wish, but I want to grant her her greatest wish. Megan is always willing to help other people and I want to help to give back to her.
Megan’s Passion For Cars
Megan and I have a passion for cars. It is the reason we met at a local car show in Atlanta named Caffeine and Octane. She has always had a burning passion for the automotive world but has never had the opportunity to own something she could work on, modify, and call her own. Her niche is American pony cars, the only difference between Megan and most people is the fact she requires hand controls. What was initially thought to be a knee injury was actually an aggressive 7cmx7cm tumor growing in her knee.
The osteosarcoma was found after she felt as if she fractured her knee while serving in the U.S. Army; due to her new history of cancer and the multiple surgeries she has endured through her treatment so far, she will never have a chance of re-enlisting.
6 rounds of brutal chemotherapy, over half a year of treatment, and a failed surgery that removed her femur, knee, and tibia to replace with metal; not only did the pathology come back that her cancer did not respond to chemotherapy, but now on July 13th, Megan’s right leg must be amputated above the knee. This is because, within two days of her limb salvage surgery, the hardware in her leg became infected with a drug-resistant bacteria. Making amputation the only option that has the greatest chance of saving her life.
Due to her right leg being amputated, she can no longer drive with standard pedals. To be able to provide something like this to her would be a dream come true. Thank you for all the love and support, Justin Meinert.
Megan’s mother’s prayers for her surgery
Friends, please help by sending a word of encouragement to my daughter Megan Maryanski. As you know, she is a tough young woman fighting osteosarcoma. she has been through chemo and surgery, and is now faced with the amputation of her right leg.
She and her medical team have decided that this is the best chance for her to beat a post-surgical infection, get on to the next round of chemo as quickly as possible, and fully beat this awful cancer. We all agree with her, but as you can imagine it is a tough decision.
Surgery is Friday, and I think it would help to see lots of encouraging words for her from you all. More importantly, for her to know that you are praying for her, as we know that God is the ultimate healer. Post here, or on her page. Send her a text. Share with others that I may have missed.
She needs the strength and encouragement that you can provide. (her caregivers like me, Jean Maryanski, Jordan Maryanski, Ashley Maryanski, and Justin Meinert probably need it too). God will heal her and get her through this, and get her back to a healthy and active life. Thank you!
Jean Maryanski raising funds for Megan
Hi, my name is Jean Maryanski, Megan Maryanski’s stepmom. I’m reaching out to you, our friends and our family to ask you to help Meg achieve her dream of running again.
Meg was a runner… she ran every day! She was on the Big Creek Greenway, Sawnee Mountain, a trail behind her house, or just on a treadmill if she didn’t have time to run outside. But that girl LOVED to run! We even completed a couple of Peachtree Road Races together before her diagnosis. As most of you know, cancer robbed her of the ability to run when it took one of her legs a few years ago.
There’s a prosthetic leg out there that would allow Meg to run again, but at a cost of $32,000, it’s more than our family can financially handle alone. Our insurance company refuses to cover any of the cost because they don’t consider this leg medically necessary. They will only cover the most basic prosthetic leg for just walking.
Here’s what Meg said this leg would mean to her… “Basically, running again would completely change my life. Ever since elementary school, I’ve been a long-distance runner. Not having the ability to run has been holding me back from accomplishing goals I’ve had for years before I had cancer. I don’t remember what it’s like to run, but I frequently dream of being able to run again.“
Any donation at all will be greatly appreciated! Let’s help Meg achieve her dream of running again!!!
Thank you all so much!
