This September is the month for the NF hero challenge!

As I have shared before, I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF) when I was nine years old. NF is a genetic condition that causes tumours to grow on nerves throughout the body, including the brain and spine. It is progressive, unpredictable and there is no cure. Conquering NF is more than just finding a cure. The NF journey from diagnosis to treatment is challenging, and most of what families will experience is unknown. A child is born with NF every three days in Australia.

Many people come to the CTF at breaking point, seeking help to solve a specific problem or to feel connected to someone who understands their pain. Unfortunately, COVID has only compounded their sense of isolation and invisibility. But there is hope. This is where the NF hero challenge comes in!

I am joining the NF Hero Challenge to raising much-needed funds to support the Children's Tumour Foundation! The funds raised will ensure that those living with NF (and their families) can feel supported as they face this challenging condition. I aim to raise $3000 to support the Children's Tumour Foundation's investment into research, specialist clinics and vital support services.

The challenge I am taking up is giving up chocolate for the entire month of September.

Would you please help me reach my goal and complete my challenge by making a tax-deductible donation?

With our powers combined, I believe we can #conquerNF.

Be a hero today!
