Hi. This is my nephew Vance. He is eight years old and loves baseball. He is also funny, energetic, smart, and much better at video games than I am.
Our family found out five years ago that Vance has a form of Nuerofibromitosis known as NF1. He is doing well, but has already faced things no child should have to face; chemotherapy, sleeping in back braces, lifts for his tennis shoes, and the uncertainty of what the next doctors visit might hold in store. I am so proud of his grit and the spirit he has always displayed in the face of adversity.
When I compete in events like ToughMudder, the Firefly Run, and this years Peachtree Road Race, I do so with Vance and others like him in mind. What are a few moments of temporary physical discomfort compared to what they must deal with everyday? Thanks to the Childrens Tumor Foundation's Endurance Team, I have found a way to help raise money to fund the research that WILL one day find a cure for NF.
I do kNow a Fighter, and thanks to your generosity, I can do my small part to help him.
ation and your generosity close to my heart.
