We at Ouse District School are joining the fight against Neurofibromatosis (NF) by fundraising in support of the Children's Tumour Foundation of Australia (CTF).
NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumours to grow on the nervous system, including the brain and spine. It is progressive, unpredictable and currently there is no cure.
Every day, children and adults are forced to fight a foe they can sometimes neither see, hear or even feel, but it can attack their body from the inside out - without warning and without remorse. They face a life of uncertainty and anxiety; forced to fight tumours that can cause blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, physical disfigurement, learning difficulties and cancer.
They are borN Fighters and we are proud to be standing in their corner supporting them through their difficult journey.
We have a goal to raise $2000 to support the Children's Tumour Foundation's investments into research, specialist clinics and educational resources, as well as support programs that will lead to improved health and life outcomes - and eventually a cure.
I believe that tumours should never be a person's normal, so please help me reach our goal by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Today Ouse District School had our NF day where students dressed in blue and green and purchased blue and green treats.
We made $93.80 which is a fantastic effort given that we only have 16 students.
Thank you for your support, and a big thank you to Merryn for making the yummy treats.
