The Children's Tumor Foundation is a great cause which focuses on finding a cure for NF2. NF2 is a debilitating neurological disorder that causes brain and spine tumors to grow. This disease has taken my Grandma, Mom, and Uncle, left me deaf, and my son half blind. If we don't fight back we can't expect to win!
So many clinical studies are going right now that may very well lead to a cure for NF2, I am doing my part by running and raising funds for research. Do your part today and donate! I am doing this not just for myself, or for all of my wonderful friends who also have this disease, but for my kids who deserve to grow up with a healthy Mommy.
The NF Marathon Team is one of the tools the CTF employs to raise money. There are hundreds of runners participating in races all over the country. There are people with NF as well as family and friends on our team.

I would love to see you all in Long Beach in October, the home of the "endless summer" either running with me or cheering me on. You may walk/run a full or half marathon or even a 5K. You CAN do this!
