During a check-up in July, Megan, from Ripley, was told by doctors that she has seven tumours in her lungs.
Operating would only serve to reduce her quality of life considerably, so health professionals have advised Megan that her diagnosis is terminal.
She told the Derby Telegraph: "I'm waiting for my next clinical appointment to discuss that.
"I'm absolutely devastated - more so for my children. With the youngest it's quite difficult because he wouldn't really understand.3 The mum of two is devastated and wants to enjoy as much time with her sons as possibleCredit: BiPM MEDIA
"And with my eldest, he knows that I'm poorly but at the minute he doesn't know the full extent."
Since discovering the heartbreaking news, the father of Megan's children set up a GoFundMe page in Megan's name.
Megan has been blown away by the response. The original target was £500, but already more than £8,000 has been raised.
She said: "It's unbelievable - I can't get over people's generosity to be honest.3 Donations for the family have poured inCredit: Gofundme
"It's been mind-blowing. It's really amazing how people can come together - I still can't get over it now.
"We've been looking at nice log cabins and different places where the boys can go with the bikes. It will create some really nice memories with them."
Megan has been battling cancer since the age of 14, when she was first diagnosed with a form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.
After breaking her leg on holiday, Megan received an x-ray scan which revealed no lasting complications - but months later, she started losing a dramatic amount of weight and was in too much pain to walk.
Doctors then found the cause of her poor health - a huge tumour the size of a fist in her knee. Megan does not yet know how long she has left with her boys, but fund organiser Jamie Bromley thanked donors who have contributed."It will to a very long way to creating some amazing memories," he said.

Cardi B Defends Choosing Kylie Jenner For New Music Video After Fans Start A Petition To Remove Her
Rapper Cardi B defended her decision to include Kylie Jenner in the music video for her new single “WAP.”
In now-deleted tweets Cardi B claimed the decision wasn’t about race, according to a report published Sunday by UsWeekly. The tweets came after a petition to have Jenner removed from the video on Change.org gained 65,000+ signatures.
“The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone,” the person who started the petition wrote.

“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f*ckin ass off!” Cardi B reportedly tweeted. “Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass.”
“Not everything is about race,” Cardi continued on Twitter, USWeekly reported. “Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about. This is not about f*ckin race.” (RELATED: Cardi B Is Disappointed In The Lack Of Sex During Quarantine)
The tweets were in response to a fan who wasn’t impressed with Jenner’s appearance in the video.
“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door,” the user tweeted, according to UsWeekly. “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”

The rapper then gave her reasons for choosing Jenner. She said Jenner had treated Cardi and her daughter “lovely” at Jenner’s daughter’s birthday party. She also claimed her husband Offset and Jenner’s baby’s father, Travis Scott, are also close.
Adding Jenner to this music video gave Cardi and Megan Thee Stallion so much more exposure than it would have gotten if she hadn’t been included. Megan has 13.4 million followers on Instagram. Cardi B has 72.3 million followers.
Jenner has 189 million followers on Instagram. She has shared behind-the-scenes photos on her Instagram and has uploaded Instagram stories included links directly to the music video. The video had 61 million views at the time this article was published.
Jenner didn’t make all of those page views happen, but I think she probably added a whole extra level of exposure for this song.
