A hero is someone that :
When Nancy’s daughter Morgan was just two years old, she was diagnosed with leukemia. Morgan wasn’t allowed to go anywhere other than her home and the hospital because she had a very weak immune system and exposure to any sickness, even a cold, could be life threatening to her.
Nancy was upset that Morgan couldn’t go to school with all of her friends because of her leukemia, so she decided she needed to change that. One day at the hospital Morgan was playing with another child who had cancer. She thought that that was okay because the child, like her wasn’t exposed to germs. She then realized that she should start something for all these kids like Morgan. A place where they could all learn and play without getting sick.
The Morgan Center is a preschool for children with cancer who aren’t allowed to go out in public spaces or go to school.
At the Morgan Center,kids with cancer can learn and make friends without worrying about getting sickThe Morgan Center
Since the children have weak immune systems because of their chemotherapy, each child has their own individual supply box which includes glues, crayons and play dough.
Their supplies are never shared and are washed after each use.The Morgan Center
