BENEFITING: Children's Tumor Foundation
EVENT DATE: Aug 07, 2016
As some of you might know, I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis at birth. I have had 8 surgeries to remove a fibroma from my eye. Plus others on other areas. NF is more common than Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy combined yet most people have never heard of it. I want to help change that.
NF causes tumors to grown in and on the body wherever there are nerve endings, so EVERYWHERE! Many people living with NF are in constant pain from the tumors, can cause blindness, and death, and many other struggles in life.
I have been thinking about a way to raise money for NF for many years, just didn't know how to go about it or what to do. I am going to really challenge myself and enter the 'Tough Mudder" In August to help raise the funds. It's a very difficult course. 16KM of running, jumping, climbing, crawling , swinging over obstacles and of course lots of mud.
Please help me any way if you can! ALL Proceeds go directly to NF research. Thank you!!
