Taliyah's Smile

Taliyah is a 3 year old girl from Durham battling a serious brain tumor.  Taliyah has always wanted her own set of wheels and wants to visit the Great Wolf Lodge.  

Meg’s Smile Foundation arranged a trip for Taliyah and her family to the Great Wolf Lodge of Concord. When they returned home, Taliyah had her very own pink Camaro waiting for her to climb into!

A special thank you to our friends at The Great Wolf Lodge for always accommodating our guests from Meg’s Smile Foundation. A thank also goes out to our many supporters for helping make children like Taliyah smile!!
