“I was diagnosed when I was 5 years old and we found out because I kept running into stuff because I couldn’t see it. And I also failed an eyesight test at school. I had to get an eye doctor appointment and she saw something on my optic nerve on my right eye so she sent me to Louisiana and from there they sent me to St. Jude in Memphis’s Tennessee. We found out that it was a tumor and I was completely blind in my right eye so from there we did chemotherapy and also found out that I had more tumors on my spine along with scoliosis. There weren’t very many on my spine at the time so they were just keeping an eye on it. About 2 years ago I had to have surgery on my back because my spine was an S and I have several NF spots on my spine now. The last time I had an X-ray and were 26 on my spine. I have both NF1 and NF2.

“This is a huge huge help in so many ways. It kept us from having to take out a loan. We don’t have the money to pay back a loan so this is greatly, greatly appreciated.”
