    Because of Siskin Hospital, I can be queen.

    - Megan Morris

    When 13-year-old Megan Morris began losing her balance and experiencing numbness in her legs, she knew something was terribly wrong. After becoming unable to walk, an emergency visit to the hospital revealed that she had Transverse Myelitis, an inflammation of her spinal cord. 

    Frightened and apprehensive about her future, Megan was admitted to Siskin Hospital. The caring staff quickly became family as they enabled Megan to cope with her illness, and more importantly, feel like a normal teenager again. They were there to help Megan learn to walk and care for herself and even surprised her with a birthday celebration. 

    Today Megan is a high school graduate pursuing her dreams for a bright future. Recently, she lived out the ultimate teenage girl's dream when she was crowned Homecoming Queen. It was the highlight of her senior year and one more proof that her life has endless possibilities.
