Moriah's Smile

Moriah is an 18 year old girl from Apex, NC who has battled Tetrology of Fallot since she was born. This condition requires on-going care for both cardiac and pulmonary functions.  

Terri Wasley, Founder of Meg’s Smile Foundation had the pleasure teaching Moriah in her Spanish 1 and 2 class. She always worked so hard and did everything with a smile on her face. Moriah has major surgery coming up soon. Because of this, Moriah will likely begin her college education as a home based student.

We were so happy to be able to provide Moriah with a new Apple laptop computer. This will allow her to take classes remotely and continue her pursuit of a college degree. Good luck Moriah with all of your studies!
