Marley's Smile

Marley is a 3 year old sweetheart from Durham, NC. Marley battles a rare neurological disorder called AHC. This diagnosis causes seizures, developmental delay and paralysis along with several other symptoms. Because of its rare nature, prognosis changes from day to day.

Meg’s Smile Foundation provided Marley with an iPad to allow her to watch movies and play games.  We also provided an iTunes gift card so she can download movies and apps. As you can see from her smile – mission accomplished!!

Thank you to our supporters for providing Marley this much needed “smile!”
