Reece is a 10 year old boy from Cary, NC who has been battling a brain tumor for over a year. As we have seen many times with kids battling like Reece is, computer games are really popular with kids as they have long treatment times in the Hospital.
Knowing this was of interest to Reece, Meg’s Smile Foundation hooked him up with a super-fast gaming laptop computer along with all kinds of computer games and accessories.
Reece was shocked and all smiles when he received his computer at home. We are so happy to make Reece smile and be able to provide him some much needed entertainment as he continues his battle!
Reece’s smile cannot happen without the generous support from you. Thank You!
