Noah is a 16 year old boy from Charlotte, NC. He is battling a rare form of cancer that strikes the muscles and connective tissue. Noah has been battling this rare, Stage 4 disease for over a year. If anyone needed a “smile,” it was Noah!
Noah is an athlete himself and loves all things Charlotte sports related, including the Charlotte Hornets. The Charlotte Hornets provided access to the pre-game shoot around for Noah, his friends and family. Noah got to meet his favorite player - Kemba Walker!
They also watched the game from lower level seats, just a few rows up from the court. Meg’s Smile Foundation provided a meal and souvenirs to complete the night for Noah and his family.
We would like to thank the Charlotte Hornets organization for making this VIP access for Noah possible. Thank you for supporting Meg’s Smile Foundation!
