Ashley was diagnosed with NF at four weeks old. Ashley undergoes chemotherapy treatment and has a shunt in her brain due to a tumor. No one else in Ashely’s family has NF, although it is suspected her mother has it but has not been diagnosed. Mary lives on disability making it hard to provide for herself and her two children. B Kind provided Mary with three months of food assistance to help her put food on the table, and offset the costs of other living expenses.
