Meg's Smile Foundation Presents:

Evana’s Writing Workshop

Evana is a 22-year-old young lady from Concord who has been battling cystic fibrosis her entire life. She also lives with diabetes as a result of her disease. Evana is an aspiring writer, writing has been a major coping mechanism for dealing with her illness. She wanted to attend a summer workshop at the Fine Arts Work Center Provincetown for the Center’s 3rd annual poetry festival. Meg’s Smile Foundation paid for her trip to attend the workshop where she was able to share her poems.

Shortly after Evana returned, she sent us this note, “I just finished attending my poetry workshop at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. It was such an amazing, productive week for my writing and I would not have been able to attend had it not been for the generosity of Meg’s Smile. Thank you so much for helping me achieve this step in my writing career. Meg’s Smile reminded me that anything is possible even when you have a chronic illness.”

Your support helps young people like Evana pursue their dreams even when battling serious illnesses. Thank you for your support.
