Meagan Bebenek was just 4-years-old when she was diagnosed with an inoperable and malignant brain tumour. Within only six months following her diagnosis, Meagan passed away. Despite only being with us for five years, Meagan's legacy is remarkable. After Meagan's passing, Denise, Meagan's Mom, knew she had to do something to help other children and families who faced serious health challenges. Denise knew that no family should have to walk this path alone and founded Meagan’s HUG: Creating a Circle of Hope.
Meagan's HUG’s mission is to harness the power of community to raise awareness and funds for paediatric brain tumour research to provide hope and improve outcomes for affected children and their families. Their vision is to secure a world where no children and their families suffer from a brain tumour.
