Instead of flowers, chocolates or jewelry, I'm donating my Valentine's Day to my daughter, Mykayla Jo.
Every Valentine's Day, the average American spends $168. This year, could you help me raise that much for research to help Mykayla?
Mykayla has NF1. She is currently fine, but we still see at least five doctors every six months for checkups. She has already had one MRI to check for tumors in her brain and on her optical nerves, and she's scheduled for another this Spring. She has escaped the childhood cancers, bone deformities, learning disabilities, blindness and other NF1 afflictions that can occur before the age of three. However, NF1 really gets active around puberty (as if being a teenager wasn't enough!), so we hope and pray that Mykayla will remain healthy. It's scary, and there is hardly anything known about NF1. It affects roughly 1 in 3,000 kids. It's supposedly common, but none of our acquaintances and even some nurses had ever heard of it. It can be inherited, but most cases are spontaneous mutation at conception. Even if Mykayla avoids the afflications of NF1, she'll have to consider the risk of passing it on to her children.
NO CHILD SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS, so I'm doing my part to find a cure for NF.
With the $18.6 Billion spent each year on Valentine's Day, let's put some of that money to better use. By donating to Cupid Charities, every dollar raised will provide critical funding that will allow for treatments, clinical trials and ultimately will fund the research to find a cure for NF.
And the 2 million worldwide battling NF.
