Lexi is a five year old cutie currently residing at the Ronald McDonald House in Durham. At birth, Lexi was diagnosed with epilepsy. Since then she has also been diagnosed with Alternating Hemiplegia, a rare neurologic disorder affecting one in a one million people. This rare disease leaves Lexi paralyzed at times and unable to communicate.
Meg’s Smile Foundation purchased Lexi an I Pad along with $500 in I Tunes cards for her to load up her new tablet. This will allow Lexi to better communicate with her family as well as keep her entertained as she continues to battle!
Our thanks to all of you for helping us to provide Lexi with this wonderful “smile.”New Gadgets
