Jaylin's iPad Smile

Jaylin is a 3 year old sweetheart from Mebane. Jaylin battles Hurler Syndrome which makes her have multiple physical challenges as well as being non-verbal. She received a stem cell cord blood transplant at Duke in 2014. Her family moved to North Carolina from West Virginia so they could be closer to her Doctors at Duke.

Jaylin’s Mom thought an IPad would be great for Jaylin. We purchased an IPad along with several specialized apps that Jaylin can use to learn and help her communicate. All reports are that she is doing great and loves her IPad!

Your support allows children like Jaylin to receive items like these. Thank You!!
