Cherry is a young lady from Newton, NC who has been battling a brain tumor for fourteen years. Her tumor has relapsed four times with the last instance resulting in a tremendous amount of pain.

Meg’s Smile Foundation sent Cherry, her Mom and Grandmother on a five day cruise from Charleston, SC to Bahamas. Cherry and her family had a wonderful time together!
A special thank you to Judy Julian with Go 4 Less Now Travel for helping us with Cherry’s travel and to you, for your continued support of Meg’s Smile Foundation!
