Cristian's Quinceñero

Cristian is a fourteen-year-old boy from Durham. He battles Adrenoleukodystrophy, a rare genetic disorder that has left him in palliative care.

Cristian’s family wanted him to have a traditional Quinceañero (15th) birthday party which would allow him to reflect on his youth while in Mexico. Meg’s Smile Foundation arranged for Cristian’s family to throw a wonderful party complete with a custom cake, traditional suit, boots, hat and tie to wear as well as all of the food, decorations and a mariachi band. Cristian, his family and friends had a wonderful time they will always remember.

Because of your support, children like Cristian have their smiles fulfilled – thank you!
