Caroline is a 16-year-old girl from South Boston, VA being treated at Duke Children’s Hospital for ALL leukemia. She was diagnosed when she was 8 years old and went through rigorous treatment for over 2 years. Caroline’s leukemia came back 4 years later and is currently in active treatment.
Caroline is a huge Washington Redskins fan and wanted to go to a game. Meg’s Smile Foundation arranged for Caroline and her family to have an all expenses paid trip for the weekend to the Washington D.C. area. On Sunday of that weekend, Caroline and her family attended the game in style in club level seating. In addition, they all got to head down to the field for the pre-game warmups. Caroline and her family were on cloud nine!
A very special thank you to the Washington Redskins for extending their courtesies to Caroline and her family. We also thank our supporters for providing the support needed to send Caroline and her family on this awesome trip!Sports Smiles
