12-year-old Megan Kershaw, who has endured 18 months of chemotherapy in addition to having three quarters of her liver removed, is fighting a rare form of liver cancer. Megan was diagnosed with the disease in 2008 after she suddenly collapsed one day at school. Despite her battle, Megan filled out a “wish board” that included her dream of meeting Simon, Girls Aloud, and traveling to Disney World.
After hearing of this young girl’s story, Simon decided to make all of her wishes come true. The seemingly cold man has a heart after all- and it’s made of gold!
Megan’s mother Deborah comments, “This is wonderful […] I think he was touched by her story and Megan’s determination to beat cancer. It will be really emotional for me to see her finally getting to Disney World after all that we have been through.”
Megan’s trip to Disney World will take place next month in celebration of her 13th birthday. In response to his amazing gift, Simon simply stated, “Megan is a brave girl. I’m glad I could help.”
