Ridge is a 3-year-old little boy from Mebane who battles an inoperable brain tumor. He was on chemotherapy for 18 months to try and control his tumor. Ridge’s treatment has been discontinued as his body was no longer reacting to his tumor. He has had 3 surgeries and is blind in one eye and partially blind in the other. He also continues to battle chronic pain due to neuropathy. If anyone needs a smile, it is Ridge.
Ridge’s family remembers how much fun they all had in the mountains of Gatlinburg, TN. Meg’s Smile Foundation provided an all expenses paid trip back to Gatlinburg where Ridge and his family got to enjoy family time including hiking and horseback riding. The trip had Ridge and his entire family smiling.
We could not do these special trips for kids and their families without your support – thank you!
