The Believe in Magic charity was set up by a 16 year old girl and her mother. Megan and Jean’s charity helped grant wishes to sick children in a make-a-wish sort of way and some kids, including Megan even got to meet One Direction members.

The charity was founded because Megan was diagnosed with a rare brain condition and a few years later a brain tumour.

A group of internet sleuths became suspicious after Jean tried to raise money for an emergency trip to see a doctor overseas.
So was Megan really sick? And if she wasn’t, then how did she die? Journalist Jamie Bartlett has joined Mia for this episode of No Filter, as he got involved later down the track and what he discovered will send shivers.
