B the Difference was founded in October 2011 by Stephanie and Jessica Merritt to honor the memory of their brother, Brandon. When Brandon was 8 months old he was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a disease targeting the nervous system by developing tumors on nerve endings. Brandon never asked “Why me?” as NF compromised his ability to play sports and interact with children his age—if anything his physical disabilities allowed his personality to become incredibly nurturing and sensitive. B the Difference, the name and trademark of the Brandon Merritt Charitable Foundation, is not just a catchy name—we truly strive to be the difference in the lives of individuals afflicted with NF.
