Daniel W. is a 7 year old boy, with a love of dinosaurs, who was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) back in January 2013; at that time, one tumor was found located on his brain. A follow up MRI in July 2013 showed that the original tumor had grown in size. The July 2013 MRI also revealed an additional tumor on the other side of his brain as well as a tumor located on his spine, which the doctors believe will effect his leg movement and control.
Daniel will begin seeing a specialty doctor in Columbus, Ohio in hopes of treating and preventing any further growth or development of tumors. This will involve multiple overnight visits and expensive medical bills.
All of the proceeds from the "Dinos for Daniel" Virtual 5K Run/Walk will go directly to Daniel and his family to help cover the expenses of the hospital visits and bills.
