Jordan is a 14-year-old boy from Kernersville. He battles hyperglycinemia, a condition that causes him to not be able to rid himself & regulate his glycine levels. This congenital, life limiting condition has lead to severe developmental delays in all areas, frequent seizure activity, as well as fine and gross motor deficits, and cortical blindness.
Jordan and his family have fond memories of being in the Florida Keys. Meg’s Smile Foundation made possible a trip for Jordan and his family to the Florida Keys where they enjoyed family time.
Thank you for your generous support of Meg’s Smile Foundation!
