Margaret Donovan Moonan
March4Meg's namesake was Evergreen Park resident, Meg (Donovan) Moonan.
Meg grew up on the southside of Chicago with her four siblings and attended St. Thomas More School and Maria High school. In 1994 she married the love of her life, Ken Moonan and together they were happily raising their four children (Luke 14, Ellen 11, Will 9, and Marty 4) in the wonderful community of Holy Redeemer Parish in Evergreen Park. In August 2010, Meg’s life, and the lives of all who loved her, would change forever when she was diagnosed with melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.
During her 19-month battle, Meg endured 2 surgeries, numerous experimental chemotherapy treatments and 16 hospital stays. Meg fiercely battled this horrific disease with a quiet resolve that was an inspiration to us all, diligently researching the latest trials and treatments available. Meg’s focus was always on her family and the never-ceasing prayer that she would live to see a cure. Tragically, on March 30, 2012, Meg lost her battle.
