The incredible story of artist Jeffrey Hanson is featured on page 110 of the issue of People currently on newsstands (it’s not online, we’ve contacted People’s staff and it will not run while the issue is on newsstands but may run online thereafter — we’ll update if it does).  Jeff lives with NF1 and had his eye sight severely limited due to an optic glioma that was treated with chemotherapy but not before affecting his optic nerve.  However, Jeff did not let the challenges of NF limit his artistic vision.  He is an accomplished painter and has contributed several works to the Foundation’s Gala, all the while donating the funds raised through his work to worthy children’s charities, including  more than $50,000 to the Children’s Tumor Foundation.  We are very grateful to Jeff and the Hanson family for their dedication to supporting NF research and care, and for the shining example they set for overcoming the challenges of NF.
