In the fall of 2006, Theo was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF1). NF is a genetic condition that causes benign tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. Affecting one in every 3,000 births, NF is more prevalent than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Huntington's disease, and Tay Sachs combined.
Theo's journey with NF has entailed two surgeries in his brain stem area and ongoing monitoring of existing growths. NF is unpredictable. To date there are few effective treatments and there is no cure. We intend to change that.
Your support of Team Theo funds life-changing research and will enrich the lives of individuals and families touched by NF.
