Clay is a four-year-old boy from Apex. Clay battles Ependymoma, a form of Brain/Spinal tumor. After Clay had surgery and radiation treatments, they found that the tumor had moved into the nerves of his spine. Because of this, he had to go through another round of radiation. Clay could definitely use a smile.
Clay loves to learn new things. Meg’s Smile Foundation delivered an I Pad with Osmo games on it as his parents said Clay really enjoys these games. You can tell by his reaction that he loves it!
Thank you for all you do to help children smile!
