IL - Tyler Neppl

Tyler was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis or NF at a very young age. He has been affected by tumor growth since he was 3 months old. As you can see in the picture one tumor affects his sight in his left eye. If you have ever met this little ball of energy, you would not know that he has NF. He is too busy running, laughing, and playing with his big brother.

It is because of him and other children like him affected by NF that we are Racing4Research. Our goal is $6,500.

Neurofibromatosis is a condition that affects approximately 1 in 3,000 people. It is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to form on the nerves anywhere in the body at any time. NF can cause tumors, cancer, hearing loss, learning disabilities, epilepsy, bone deformities, vision impairment and chronic pain. There is no cure...YET!

Please help us reach and exceed this goal! Thank you in advance for your generous support!
