Meet Meg Brown
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Survivor
Author and renowned speaker, Meg Brown, tells a spellbinding story to a thousand people as if she were sitting across from just one. With humor and insight, she shares the secrets of her survival from a nearly fatal bout with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Not only do Meg’s audiences discover her keys to surviving the fight of her life, they realize they can apply those very same survival secrets to their own challenges, whatever they may be.
Beginning in February 2002, Meg endured over 100 days in hospitals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. On November 6, 2002, she had a peripheral blood stem cell transplant from an unrelated donor, one of the toughest medical procedures to withstand.
In May 2003, after six months of recovery from her transplant, Meg began talking about the experience and what it taught her. Since then, Meg has shared her story with thousands of people. During that time she has also tutored junior high math students while completing her requirements for teacher certification — a process which had been interrupted when her illness forced her to leave The University of Texas.
Although Meg had finished her eligibility as a Texas Longhorn basketball player, she had one more year of college before she could start teaching and coaching. When cancer hijacked the game plan, her career was delayed for three years. In the fall of 2005, Meg began teaching math in Euless, Texas and she now resides in Austin, TX teaching and coaching at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders.
