A very happy ending

As promised I want to keep you updated on one of my favorite patients, Olympian Meghan Kinney (see September 8th posting below).

We met on Meghan’s 22nd birthday – the day she completed months of chemotherapy following removal of a cancerous tumor in her knee. Although Meghan’s diagnosis ended her Olympic hopes for 2012 it certainly has not stopped her dreams or her ability to give back.

I caught up with Meghan late last month when she shared her story with Andrea Camburn during the 10-TV Health and Fitness Expo at the Columbus Convention Center. Meghan looked fantastic and after the presentation I got to meet her wonderful boyfriend John, who has been by Meghan’s side throughout her entire cancer experience.

I’m happy to report that later the same day this picture was taken, John proposed and Meghan happily accepted – Hooray! She deserves every happy ending and we’ll keep you posted on the wedding plans! Please share your comments and congratulations below as we’d love to pass them along to Meghan and John.
