Melissa’s Smile – Grant Story
Melissa Grace @Melissassmile was awarded a grant of £200 in May 2021.
We spoke with Melissa and her family to see what the grant meant for her
“The grant from you is most humbly welcomed and so very kind, it will go to my Smile Fund which is an account set up by my Mum. I have a rare condition called Angelman Syndrome which is a complex disorder with delayed development, epilepsy and many other problems which mean I need 24-hour care as my difficulties will likely increase as I get older. This fund will help provide me with the necessary items or services I will need to help me as I grow to make my life easier and help provide residential care when Mum can no longer take care of me.”
Melissa also joined us at the Knowsley Safari 10k in 2020 where she completed her MyFirst™ Mile!
