Meet Candace. Candace was diagnosed with NF1 when she was five. She had a very hard time in school and through her childhood. Candace has two inoperable brain tumors and has had various other tumors removed. Because of her NF, her pregnancy with her son Blake was high risk. “On June 12th, 2015 I was rushed to my nearest hospital because my blood pressure, oxygen levels, and heart rate kept dropping. I had to have an emergency C-section because we both were high risk. He came out healthy and safe. I thank God everyday for not taking us. My son is the reason I am still alive and on this earth.”

B Kind provided the funds for Candace to go to the NF clinic in Chicago, three hours away, to speak with a specialist for herself and get her son tested for NF.
