May of 2010 Mary Margaret was diagnosed with brain cancer. Thanks to the outstanding care and support she received at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas she was able to beat cancer. In large part to the generosity of many Mary Margaret is a cancer survivor. She is an example of why investments and donations into cancer research are vital.

Mary Margaret’s favorite subject is science, and she hopes to be a vet when she grows up. She enjoys playing the guitar and also likes playing basketball, playing outside and being with her friends on the weekends. Mary Margaret’s favorite movie star is Jack Black because he makes her laugh. Her favorite singers are Bob Marley and Elvis. She is very excited about going back to Camp Longhorn this summer since she missed last year due to her treatment. Her hero is anyone who can (and did) help her beat cancer.
