About Us

Megan’s Wings was established in January 2005 by the Savage Family in loving memory of their daughter, Megan, who lost her battle with ALL Leukemia in April 2003. Megan’s Wings exists to help pediatric cancer families navigate through their journey with childhood cancer. Because we’ve been there, we understand what families go through. Megan’s Wings is a non-profit 501c3 charity assisting families throughout Southern California. We started assisting families through one hospital and now serve approximately 200 families yearly through eight Children’s Hospitals and Cancer Centers. We are volunteer based and offer several financial aid and support service programs to help local families within the cancer community. Our funding comes from corporate sponsorships and grants, individual contributions and fundraising events. We hope you’ll join us too!

Megan's Story

Megan was a sweet, caring outgoing 6 yr old when she was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia in 1st grade. She went through 2 1/2 years of treatment, the last year fighting for her life everyday. She passed away from Leukemia on April 2, 2003 at the tender age of 9. She was greatly loved and she is greatly missed. She loved sharing her artwork with everyone around her. She loved to dance and sing and entertain. She loved making people happy, and bringing special treats to neighbors and her nurses and doctors.  She loved animals, and little children too. She helped me realize how connected we all are, and that most people are going through some form of heartache or difficulty.  I do truly believe our journey here on earth is not to be traveled alone, and we are here to help those most in need, even strangers. It's always nice to be on the giving end, but the bottom can drop out so quickly, and we need others to survive difficult times.
