Lauren is a 6 year old sweetheart from Wake Forest, NC. She battles cerebral palsy along with some other conditions that produce seizures. Lauren had just gotten discharged from a 36 day hospital stay.
She loves to spend time with her family – what better place to do that than the beautiful mountains of North Carolina!
Meg’s Smile Foundation sent Lauren and her family to the Boone, NC area where they got to visit the stadium at Appalachian State, Tweetsie Railroad and hike the beautiful area. Best of all, they were able to get away for a time to be together as a family which was the best part of all.
We are so happy to make Lauren and her family smile, thank you to our supporters for making this possible!
