#ENDNF

Laura Raheb

I Know A Fighter   Any race can be a life changing, but my next race that I do will help save lives. As part of the Children's Tumor Foundation NF Endurance Team, I will be running the NYC Half Marathon on March 19. 2017.  As my first ever half marathon, training will be challenging, but for me the finish line is just the beginning. My race will help fund research for NF or neurofibromatosis.  I hope you will support me in my fundraising efforts.   NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain. NF is under-recognized and underdiagnosed yet affects more people than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease combined.  The Children’s Tumor Foundation funds critical research to find treatments for NF.     Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page to help #ENDNF.

Advancing the mission to #EndNF @ NYC Half Marathon Alumni Reunion

Lesley Oslica

We race to #EndNF. This year, we are especially mindful of those that have gone before us - those affected by NF or family members who so dearly touched our lives in other ways. Our participation in this race will be in memory of Paul J Oslica who passed away March 5, 2017. If you would like to make a donation in memory of Paul you may do so here and indicate your memorial during registration. Paul was proud of the work that our family and friends do to help those affected by NF. Our family is grateful for your help in the mission to end nf. Thank you to all that want to honor Paul by making a donation in his memory.       Oslica's Fundraising page:  Any race can be a life changing...and our family has been blessed to be a part of many life changing races. This will be my first running race back in several years as my "retirement" race was NYC Full - that got cancelled due to Super Storm Sandy. I'm looking forward to retraining my body to run after riding for several years. This next race - the NYC Half will be all about overcoming obstacles - just like the thousands of people who live with NF have to do every year.   As most of our friends know, we run, ride, fundraise, and friendraise on behalf of our daughter, Katie, as well as for the new family that we have joined on this NF journey. We may not have chosen this journey ourselves, but we have chosen to do something about it. Please help us BE the change we wish to see in the world...please help us advance the mission to #EndNF by making a donation today.    NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain.

I Know A Fighter   Any race can be a life changing, but my next race that I do will help save lives. Meet 3 year old Alex, my NF Hero. Named after Alexander the Great, this NF warrior was diagnosed with NF1 when he was 4 months old.  He currently has inoperable tumors on his brain and back but it doesn't stop him from living a happy life attending pre-school, gymnastics and chasing his big brother. Alex loves to read and sing.  His infectious smile and sweet demeanor will melt your heart.  Thanks to the advice, support and successful research from Children's Tumor Foundation, Alex's uncertain future is a little brighter.  Thank you for making that possible through your donations today.     As part of the Children's Tumor Foundation NF Endurance Team, I am accomplishing things I never imagined I could accomplish. Training can be challenging, but for me the finish line is just the beginning. My race will help fund research for NF or neurofibromatosis.  I hope you will support me in my fundraising efforts   NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain.
