If you were able to attend Megan’s service or viewing, you may have seen the book that I wrote for Liam. I had originally started working on it when Megan found out the cancer had returned. I wanted to capture Megan’s story and her way of being, loving, and teaching in a way that a child (and us adults) could understand and love. Most of all, I wanted to capture how much she loved being a mother, and that she was so happy to be with Liam. They made the best team, and she didn’t let something like cancer keep her from enjoying being a mother.
Megan never knew I was working on the book. I didn’t finish it until the day before I left for Nebraska in December (two months ago today, actually). I’m sure she would call me a brat for keeping it a secret. :) I’m also sure she would love it, even if the illustrations are stick figures.
Megan’s Story is now available for purchase at CreateSpace here:
It is also available on Amazon:
It is available as a paperback version in order to keep costs down. Because Megan’s story lives on through Liam, all proceeds will go towards a college fund for him. (More of the book’s cost goes towards Liam’s college fund if you order through CreateSpace than any other way.)
Don’t forget that the Hats and Moore fundraiser is going on until February 28th. Check out more information here: http://miracleformegan.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/hats-and-moore-fundraiser/
The past couple months have not been the easiest- Megan was such a big source of light and life, but her light continues to shine through many of the things she taught and showed us…and especially through her little miracle man. We are so thankful for everyone’s love, support, thoughts, prayers and everything you have shown and shared with us during this time. – Love, Erin

Kopz N Konz Tattoo and Piercing Studio will be holding a Benefit this week, January 22-26 for Megan’s family. Tattoos, piercings, gift certificates and t-shirts will be available. Megan’s cousin will be appearing as a guest artist on Saturday, the 26th.

You will see a couple of the t-shirt designs available.
We’d like to thank everyone who came out for the Benefit last Friday, January 17th. It was a lot of fun and we were humbled by everyone who came to show their support who had never met Megan. Thanks to everyone who put together the Benefit and participated. Thank you again, for all of your love and support.
Here are a few videos from the day of Megan’s service.
A video of Megan’s entire service will be available soon for those who were not able to make it.
In an effort to capture even a fraction of Megan’s influence and impact on the world, we would like to ask anyone whose life Megan has touched to please take a moment and write a letter to her and/or to Liam.
These letters, along with many other messages, photos, poems, etc., will be compiled into a book for Liam so that he may know how important his mother was to us all.
Please take your time and write as much as you would like, whether it would be memories, advice for Liam, or anything else you would like to tell either of them.
When finished, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
