Mum, 23, diagnosed with tumour days after having son dies weeks after wedding

A young mum has died only weeks after she got married to the love of her life.

Megan Sweeney, 23, was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour only two days after she gave birth to her son, Roan, in August 2019.

She underwent multiple operations but doctors were forced to admit they couldn’t do anything more save her as the family tried to explore life-saving treatments.

A fundraiser by non-profit Wedding Wish Makers was launched to help Megan and Paul tie the knot last month as dozens of companies volunteered to help.

The soulmates got hitched in front of their closest loved ones during a beautiful ceremony on April 17 with Megan looking stunning in her dream dress.

The 23-year-old, from Glasgow, sadly passed away on May 10 with her family by her side.

Announcing her tragic death, Wedding Wish Makers said: “It is with great sadness to let you know Megan passed away Monday 10th May.

“Megan passed peacefully surrounded by those who love her. Megan and Paul were due to be married on 26th April but it was decided to bring the wedding forward to 17th April.

“They had a beautiful ceremony in their back garden with their closest friends and family.

“We want to thank all the suppliers who were booked in for the wedding on 26th April your support means the world to us, our couples and their families.

“Due to all the funds not being spent on the wedding, we donated this straight to the family. Thank you to each and everyone of you who donated.

“Thinking of Denise, Davy, Paul, Roan and all of Megan’s family and friends at this difficult time.”

Megan was initially admitted to hospital the day before giving birth after a violent vomiting episode which medics thought was a result of her pregnancy.

But her health began to deteriorate just hours after Roan was born with medics discovering the brain growth following an MRI.

Despite undergoing several operations, the mum-of-one was forced to undergo gruelling radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments to try stop it from growing.

Her brave family helped fundraise thousands of pounds for alternative treatments in a bid to extend her life.
