Challenges Across the Board

Hey everybody, It's been a long time since I've provided an update on how things are for me so I wanted to take some time to do that. This last quarter of the year, has undoubtedly been the hardest for me since being diagnosed. I've held on to faith and hope that treatment would keep me going but my circumstances have been less than ideal. 

I just ended my (hopefully) last fall semester of college, and it definitely gave me a run for my money. In October I was asked to be a…

ASH Take Aways

Earlier this December I was honored to attend the ASH (American Society of Hematology) conference. I was blown away by the amount of people who attended and humbled to speak with doctors to gain information on the newest technologies for aHUS. The first day there we had a lot of doctors from other countries approach our booth who did not have access to treatment. The remainder of the event we had many doctors and researchers approach us that did not know the foundation existed. Overall, ASH…

Following up - The Fight Isn't Over

Hi guys! I'm sorry that I have not been super active on the pages, life as we all know it has been crazy and very fast moving!

My Journey with aHUS

First off, my name is Megan, I am a college student, a dedicated worker, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and LASTLY a patient. I do not let aHUS define me and while I acknowledge that I have it and have limitations, I also don't let it control my life. I was diagnosed the summer of my sophomore year in college, and just finished my fall semester of my junior year. I typically take 18 credits, although this semester I only took 15. However I also have three jobs on top of my frequent doctors…

Hi Megan,  Thank you for the invitation to your talk at your church in Bridgeton, NJ.  It is quite a distance from my location (75 miles) - otherwise I would have tried to make it.  Good luck with your presentation!  I believe it is important to educate other people about how a rare and potentially catastrophic illness affects your life.
