Fighter: Mother battling cancer after overcoming health battles

Benefit set up for Sunman woman

(SUNMAN, Ind.) -- A mother of three children in Sunman has been diagnosed with cervical cancer and it's not the first time she's been given a difficult test.

31-year-old Megan Rogers has overcame her fair share of battles.

In 2007, she was in a bicycle accident and had her spleen and kidney removed along with injuries to her vertebrae.

It later led to her being diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases. Rogers also developed blood clots after having her last child two years ago.

Despite the circumstances, Megan has fought through it all and has found a way to be there for her husband and three children.

"Even after the first accident in 2007 when she was riding bikes with other kids, I remember her saying she was glad it happened to her and nobody else, because the rest probably couldn't handle it," said her mother, Tina Wells.

Megan is now undergoing cancer treatments and family and friends are trying to help with the costs.

A benefit jeep ride was held Saturday

They hosted a jeep ride benefit at the Sunman American Legion on Saturday.

There is also an account open called "Benefit for Megan Rogers" at any FCN Bank in the area.
