Children's Tumor Foundation NF Walk

As some of you know, our son Ben has a genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis Type 1.  To see a previous post where I wrote about him, just click on his name.  He is doing well; however, he is having more orthopedic issues and is tentatively scheduled for hip surgery on June 1 (we're trying to determine the best "type" of surgery).  This will be the 3rd summer in a row that he will be recovering from surgery during his summer break.  However, he is an awesome child, and usually handles his surgeries better than we do.  God's love continually shines through him!  Just look at this smile when he and his dad finished riding the Intimidator roller coaster at Carowinds (that's some wind-swept hair he's got going...)!

We are excited to be participating in the very first Children's Tumor Foundation NF Walk in Greenville, SC this weekend.  It feels good to be doing something positive to battle this condition.  The money raised by the walk will go to critical NF research.  A great deal of progress is being made, and we want to make sure NF remains at the forefront of the scientific community. 

If you would like to donate to our walk, please click on the link in the sidebar. We're a little late getting started, but every dollar counts!  Donations of ANY amount are greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
