After the exhausting 20 treatments at UCSF, Meghan took a trip to Kona, Hawaii with her family in mid-April. This was a spur of the moment trip that Meghan was determined to take and share with those she loves. With the help of her family, she was able to spend 9 beautiful days at a beach house in Kona. She was joined by her partner Sally, her buddy Tracey, her twin brother Sean and his girlfriend Alaina, Meg’s older brother Jackson, his wife Jennifer, their four kids John, Jade, Jordan and Janell, and Meg’s mom and her husband John. Meghan was able to serve as the Maid of Honor for her mother who married her wonderful fiancé, John; this was so special to Meghan, because she is so happy to know that her mother has found someone to share the rest of her life with.
Meghan was extremely tired while in Hawaii, and was only able to leave the house to go to the beach on a few occasions; the radiation treatments really wore her out. That didn’t really matter though, because the house was a paradise – right on the beach with a pool and her whole family there. Meghan WAS able to take a boat trip out to swim with the dolphins. This was an incredibly healing experience for Meghan; the energy from the dolphins was strong, and Meghan felt empowered by the dolphins. It was an unforgettable experience! With, sun, sand, ocean, dolphins and a wedding… what an amazing trip they all had!
After Meghan returned from Hawaii, she was revitalized! She took daily trips down to Chrissy Field to play with her dog Terra, and would have frequent lunches with her dad at their favorite lunch spot, Houston’s.
