I've created this page because I believe tumours should never be a person’s normal and so I am fundraising for a cure!

I want to make a difference in the lives of children and families living with the genetic disease, Neurofibromatosis (NF) and am inspired by the work of the Children's Tumour Foundation of Australia.

I am participating in the Cupid’s Undie Run on March 22nd, 2020 and you can help to conquer NF by making a tax deductible donation to my page, through the ‘Donate Now' button.

NF affects 1 in 2,500 births- it is common and yet awareness is lacking. One child is born every 3 days with a condition that causes tumours to form on their nerves, including their brain and spine. It is progressive, unpredictable and there is no cure. Have you heard of NF? Together we can make a difference!

We had never heard about NF until our little boy Darcy was diagnosed with NF1 just prior to his first birthday! Due to the unpredictability, the varying levels of severity and known complications of NF, the future of my baby boy weighs heavily on my mind and my heart every single day. However at present , we have the most amazing and healthy little man and we continue to see his specialists yearly to make sure he stays that way! We embrace the good days and together we will face any hurdle with strength and positivity as we have our family, friends and local community with us all the way!

The more people that know about Children's Tumour Foundation of Australia, the greater their impact, so please help improve awareness by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
