Benjamen's Smile

Benjamen is a young man from Wake Forest who has been a severe form of Epilepsy since he was born.  Recently, Benjamen had two brain surgeries to try and ease the seizures he experiences on a daily basis.  Benjamen and his family wanted to get away where he could swim and have fun in the water.  What better place to do that than – The Great Wolf Lodge.

Meg’s Smile Foundation provided an all-expense paid weekend to The Great Wolf Lodge in Concord.  Benjamen’s Mom reported back that it was just what their family needed.

We are so happy to be able to provide this special time for Benjamen and his family.  Thank you for all you do to allow us to provide these great trips to children battling!
