We had the privilege of spending the afternoon with Kristen, her sweet family and good friend Amber on December 15. Kristen is a heart transplant recipient who is beautiful inside and out! Kristen has such a positive spirit and a supportive, loving family and they all truly deserved a day to celebrate. What a brave young lady, who after enduring so much, now shares her story with other children to help them as they go through transplants.
Cowboy Limousine picked up the family and Kristen had lunch at her favorite restaurant, The Melting Pot. After a fabulously fun lunch it was off to Best Buy for a shopping spree! Kristen had fun picking out games to go with her new XBox! We loved seeing all the smiles today! Thank you to everyone who helps support Meg's Smile Foundation so we can keep making these deserving children and their families SMILE!
