Wigs and Humor

Sometimes Megan Woodmansee is a redhead or brunette. But life as a blonde isn't bad either, she jokes.

Having fun with her wigs is one way the 21-year-old college student is coping as she battles non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Another way she is dealing with her cancer is speaking out about it so that others will learn from her experience. Her message for young people about cancer is that it can happen to anyone, even someone vibrant like herself.

About her own condition, she's optimistic. Last week, she completed chemotherapy treatments that began in December. She and her doctors hope tests will reveal that her cancer is gone and treatments are over. She wants to return this summer to just being a college girl studying human communications.
