Why Should You Help?
  • Money raised through YOUR fundraising efforts help US help families through our Aid Programs. Your donation helps fund:

  • Patient Aid Program – helps pay medical or household bills, provides gas and grocery cards, repairs the family car to assist getting child to treatment, helps purchase bus and plane fare when treatment is far from home, help cover the cost of alternative therapies and supplements not covered by insurance, and helps with funeral expenses when a child earns their wings. Parents often miss work to care for a critically ill child. Eventually it’s hard to pay bills so Megan’s Wings Patient Aid Program steps in to help. We work directly with medical social workers who help identify families in need.

  • Megan’s Home - provides temporary housing so families can stay close to the hospital while their child goes through long term treatment such as bone marrow transplant.

  • Adopt a Family Program - provides care packages to families in need over the holidays. 

  • Special Events and Hospital Service Program hosts therapeutic events and luncheons for patients and their families in and outside the hospital setting.

  • Our Research Program - funds cutting edge childhood cancer research through organizations such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, St Baldrick’s Foundation, and City of Hope to help find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer.

Megan’s Wings was founded in January 2005 in memory of 9 yr old Megan Savage who lost her Leukemia battle on April 2nd, 2003. During Megan’s 2 1/2 yr struggle with cancer, the Savage family met other families struggling to cope financially and emotionally. It’s often necessary for a parent to cut back hours at work or one parent quit work to care for their sick child. Money eventually runs short to pay the bills & expenses increase such as gas expense for numerous appointments and hospital stays, phone calls to family, meals away from home, increased medical bills. Treatment often stretches into years with relapse, making it difficult to recover financially, even with savings. It is our wish to help ease the financial burden and foster hope through caring so families can concentrate on their sick child.
