The future was looking better for 2011 graduate Morgan Watson. Initially diagnosed with leukemia in December 2009, Watson had endured five years of various cancer treatments before going into remission in May 2014.

But this summer, the cancer returned.

“Leading up to my relapse, I was experiencing bad headaches all day, every day,” Watson said via text. “Except for a couple hours a day when I took Tylenol. Leg cramps(charley-horse like), and I was extremely tired all the day with little to no energy. I felt like I was sleeping all the time. Then when I relapsed I was surprisingly calm until I wasn’t. But you know what?! I haven’t once been mad at God. Why? Because I know it’s God’s plan for my life, and the final chapter of my book isn’t even close to being written.”

The next page in her story comes Saturday at the Frisco Rail Yard when starting at 6 p.m. the

Morgan Watson Leukemia Awareness Fundraiser Night begins.

“I am hoping for this to be big,” friend and organizer Brooke Levitsky said via text. “I’d like to pack the Frisco Rail Yard to capacity. I want it to be full of people in team Morgan shirts, and covered in orange. My goal is raise enough money for the Watson family to not have to worry about their bills (even if it’s just for one month) so they can focus on what’s most important….. Morgan and her brave decision to fight. I just pray that God is with us through this fundraiser, helps us make it as big as we can, and continues to pour into Morgan and those willing to help her.”

Featuring live music, food trucks, #Teammorgan merchandise, a bounce house, and a silent auction, the proceeds will go to the Watson family.

I hope that my fundraiser shines a light on leukemia, and informs people of what Leukemia really is,”

— 2011 graduate Morgan Watson said via text

“I started the idea the night I found out Morgan’s cancer had returned,” Levitsky said via text. “I had ideas and goals to raise money- but the support and love that I have gotten from our community is beyond incredible. I never imagined so many people would give, donate, and offer their time to make this night special for Morgan, but that just shows the impact Morgan has had on our lives. She is an amazing woman who deserves as much support and love as we can give. It has taken a lot of time and energy to get this done, but every single ounce is worth it. Morgan is worth it. I’ve never met a sweeter soul and someone more deserving of a helping hand.”

Although she is the focus of Saturday’s fundraiser, Watson continues to keep others in mind.

“I hope that my fundraiser shines a light on leukemia, and informs people of what Leukemia really is,” Watson said via text. “Also that my story gets heard, and by that doing so my story brings hope, and strength to many many people.”
