Two years ago, Meaghan Hudson sent a devastating text to her family and friends: she had cancer (multiple myeloma, which affects bone marrow), and her chances of survival were grim. She was 23 years old. “At one point there was the understanding that she may have had less than a year to live,” said Hudson’s high school friend Chelsey Whild. Hudson’s friends and family rallied around her, setting up fundraisers, shaving their heads, and even getting tattoos of the words “Sing on,” written in Meaghan’s handwriting. Today, Meaghan is alive, strong, and healthy. Was it a miracle? No, it was a lie.
