I am joining the fight against Neurofibromatosis by participating in the NF Hero Challenge this August!

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a cancer predisposition disorder that causes tumours to grow on the nervous system, including the brain and spine. It is progressive, unpredictable and there is no cure.

Living with NF is like living with a ticking time bomb. Tumours can grow anywhere, at any time. Children and adults with this disorder can lose their vision, develop untreatable brain and spinal tumours and experience deafness, bone abnormalities, cancer, learning difficulties and disfigurement. Despite the uncertainty and the pain, people with NF are brave, resilient and inspirational. They are NF heroes!

Tumours should never be a person's normal and I am proud to be fighting for a cure.

The Children's Tumour Foundation (CTF) is the leading charity in Australia supporting children and their families with NF. NF affects as many as 1 in 2,500 births, making it more common than Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington's Disease and Muscular Dystrophy, yet sadly, awareness is lacking.

Government funding accounts for less than 2% of income generated by the Children's Tumour Foundation, which equates to less than $2 in funding, per person affected in Australia. THEY NEED OUR HELP!

I have a goal to raise $1000 to support the Children's Tumour Foundation's investment into research, specialist clinics and vital support services.

Please help me reach my goal and complete my challenge by making a tax deductible donation. With our powers combined, I believe we can #conquerNF.
Be a hero today!
