Raising awareness of NF

September 27, 2018

Do you know what neurofibromatosis (NF) is? It's tumours - prolific tumours - that can occur on the spinal cord and nerves. It's as common as cystic fibrosis, and it largely affects children.
Last week I spoke about NF - and a very special family of NF fighters - in the ACT parliament. The story of Libby Elliott and what her family has done to bring awareness to NF is nothing short of inspirational. I hope it inspires you, too.
