Story

As many of our friends and family know our beautiful daughter Jessica has a condition called NF1 (or it’s full fancy term Neurofibromatosis Type 1).

At 6 years old Jessica has already gone through over 10 MRI scans, the same number of General Anaesthetics, several surgical procedures including one for a gastrostomy tube which enables us to feed her. Her joints are hyper mobile, she has low muscle tone and daily nerve pain throughout her body. Her ability to concentrate for long periods of time is significantly lower than others and she easily becomes over stimulated by new or challenging situations. She also has the most beautiful and caring nature, wonderful smile and determination to keep going despite her challenges.

Jessica is soon going to embark upon a new trial drug through Manchester Children’s Hospital to hopefully shrink a tumour which is growing very close to her airways. This will of course present its worries and challenges but we are also very lucky that research has given her this opportunity. As parents we want to fix anything that is broken for our children, and this is something that is out of our hands. Jessica works harder than most and uses more energy than most to simply get through the day.

I have a mission that if I too can use the extra energy and determination Jessica uses then we can contribute to changing the future of NF1. Just a few years ago this potentially life changing drug wasn’t available to our little girl so with more funding who knows what might be around the corner.

My initial target is £100,000 🙈 This will all be donated to fund further research into treatment for NF1 at Manchester Childrens Hospital.

I’ll be honest, the most I’ve ever raised is £300 for the RSPCA so this seems like an impossible task so any help and support would be greatly appreciated😊 Any small amount would be most gratefully received and if you can share this with your family and friends I will hopefully reach enough people to get to my over ambitious target before I’m 50 🤣

NF1 affects 1 in every 3,000 people. It’s more prevalent than Cystic Fibrosis and yet is so often still unheard of so let’s spread the word and raise some money xxxx
