Tabor's New Car

Tabor is a nineteen-year-old young man from Durham. He has battled cystic fibrosis his entire life. Tabor has a great spirit - he is a smart, kind, and driven individual who seeks a solution first and asks for help second. Tabor attends Durham Tech Community College and getting to a from school is hard without a car. Tabor’s request was to receive some help in purchasing a car which we were more than happy to do. 

Shortly after Tabor purchased his car, he wrote us this note, “I am extremely thankful to you for your kindness and to Meg’s Smile for being so generous as well. With the money the foundation gave me I was able to buy a 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid in August, and I’ve been loving every day I’ve had it. I can’t begin to thank you enough for the kindness you showed, and this car has made so many appointments so much less stressful. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!”

We are so happy to be able to help Tabor. We could not do it without your generous support. Thank You!
