Benson’s Literacy Foundation was able to help make a child’s dream come true. McKenna is battling cancer and has always dreamed of meeting Mr. Tom Izzo, Michigan State University’s head basketball coach. Tom Izzo has been an inspirational leader for years to all youth. He gives back to his community and youth in numerous ways. Thank you, Tom Izzo for making McKenna’s dream come true!
