Frances's Smile

Frances is a young lady from Raleigh, NC who has battled leukemia for two years. After several rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, Frances is struggling to get back into remission. Because of this, Frances spends a lot of time indoors.  

Frances’s computer recently crashed without any hope of saving it. We were so happy to provide Frances with a brand new MacBook Pro along with Office for Apple and a large iTunes gift card that will allow her to download a ton of apps for her computer. Frances lit right up when we delivered everything to her!

Thank you for allowing us to do these wonderful things for kids like Frances!
