Keeping the Faith

Keeping the Faith is the perfect way to describe Megan Sauer. Megan was diagnosed with brain cancer in May of 2017 at the age of 33 years old. As you know, a brain cancer diagnosis is a life changing event, especially for a family with three young children. However, Megan has always been the “go-getter” type and she approached her diagnosis with that same attitude and determination. After researching all of her options, Megan chose the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center at Henry Ford Hospital for her treatment. We’re lucky to have a world class organization like the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center so close to where we live. With the help of her doctors, Megan chose the treatment options that offered the best long-term prognosis and she has diligently followed through with all aspects of her care. Megan is now 5 years out from her initial diagnosis and first round of treatment. What seemed impossible back in May of 2017 has now happened, Megan is leading a normal life along with her family. Band concerts, karate tournaments, and family birthday parties are the norm around our house. Megan is a great wife and mother and we’re fortunate to have her in our life every day. One final important aspect to bring up when talking about Megan is how she is giving back to the brain cancer community. She is currently a member of the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center’s Patient and Family Advisory Council; a group that helps shape the patient care experience at the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center. In addition, Megan founded and is the team captain for the King of Kings team which has been participating in and raising money for Head for the Cure since 2019. We love you Megan and are proud of you! Mike, Aubrey (12), Finn (10), and Cameron (6)
