MEAGHAN'S STORY

Meaghan’s story is one of inspiration, hope and beating all odds. Meaghan has been blessed with support and love, and in return, she wants to give back to the community that supported her.

At the Meaghan Zaremba Music Room those with challenges are free to explore music in a safe, encouraging and wonderfully supportive environment.

In 1986, at the young age of 5, Meaghan was involved in a serious car crash. Meaghan sustained severe brain damage, along with various soft tissue and bone injuries.

The doctors suggested to Meaghan’s mother that she be taken off life support.

But…. with a mother’s intuition, Danielle refused.

After countless medical hurdles- 16 brain surgeries, numerous close calls, and more than 20 years of dealing with seizures, Meaghan’s spirit has stayed true and strong. Life has taken Meaghan on this unexpected journey, but she has endured and blossomed into an amazing young woman.
