Bryce is a 10 year old boy from Raleigh that lives with a rare form of epilepsy called ESES. Bryce was diagnosed three years ago. He battles 15 seizures a day which occur when he eats and sleeps. As you can imagine, Bryce has had it so hard and was in need of a “smile.”
Meg’s Smile Foundation arranged for an all-expense paid trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where Bryce, his mom and sister could spend some much needed time away. Bryce’s Mom said they had a wonderful time.
Thank you for all you do to help send children like Bryce on special trips to make them happy and smile!
