Ife's day with the LA Lakers

Ife is a sweet boy from Raleigh, NC who is battling a brain tumor. He really wanted to go see a Lakers Basketball game and fortunately the Lakers were playing in Charlotte, NC in December. We were able to send Ife and his family to Charlotte for the big game between the Charlotte Bobcats and the LA Lakers. To add to this experience, Ife got to meet his favorite player, Kobe Bryant!!!!

What an amazing day we were able to give Ife and his family because of all the wonderful support we receive from so many generous people! Thank you to the the Lakers, The Bobcats and especially Kobe Byrant for making Ife's dream come true! Thank you to all of you that support Meg's Smile Foundation, we could not do these great things with out your help!
