Khamari is a 10 year old boy from Garner, NC. He has been battling a brain tumor for the last eight months. Sadly, Khamari and his family were told that he only had weeks to live. Khamari asked to go to Washington DC to sightsee and attend a Washington Wizards basketball game.
Meg’s Smile Foundation sent Khamari and his family on a 4 day trip to Washington, DC. He took in a Wizards game where he and his family had VIP access for the playoff game vs. the Atlanta Hawks. Khamari even got to meet Raleigh native, John Wall and Bradley Beal.
We are so happy that we were able to make Khamari smile. Thank you for all you continue to do for the children at Meg’s Smile Foundation.
