Dr. SMILES is a civil association dedicated to work for children with chronic and terminal diseases such as AIDS, cancer, cystic fibrosis, and renal failure, among others.
The foundation’s mission is to change the pain that children suffer into moments of hope and joy. In order to make this possible they have several programs, such as hospital visits, children's day celebrations, Mexican “posadas” in hospitals, trips every Saturday with children and their families to several amusement parks and recreation centers, and the main program is to find the way to make their dreams come true (visit the beach and enjoy the sea, bring them close their favorite celebrities or sports stars, and others.)
The British-born Scott, globally known for his role as EJ Dimera on the popular American soap opera, Days Of Our Lives is deeply passionate about supporting children faced with unparalleled challenges. “I would like to thank the State of Quintana Roo, Mexico, and the Isla de Cozumel and their respective Governments for inviting me to participate in an event that so generously supports the Dr Sonristas (Dr. Smiles) Foundation. The Dr. Sonrisas Foundation is an extraordinary organization, the work that they do to help children is to be applauded, and to be able to offer support to this most worthy organization is a privilege and an honor. I would also like to thank Fanatiks, QR Celebrity Golf, OutBox, Oveishon, Sabor Cozumel resort and the Mayor of Cozumel for their most gracious hospitality.”[
Days Of Our Lives is broadcast around the world, and has been broadcasting for almost fifty years.
