The NF Network has teamed up with the Newman's Own Foundation for a $500,000 holiday challenge. Are you up for a challenge? We were inspired to join after hearing the story of Laila‚Äôs love for her brother with neurofibromatosis (NF). Read their story and join us! 

Hi! My name is Laila, I'm 14 years old and the fourth child in a family of five from Memphis, TN. This year I led a team of 41 people at the #NFStrong Walk in October in honor of my brother Ethan; he's 11. He's taught me a lot about how to laugh your way through life, be generous, and (most importantly) be resilient. Living with NF, Ethan has had to tough his way through pain constantly, but he never lets it keep him from living his life to the fullest. Our team, Ethan's Hero League, raised over $4,000 by creating an online fundraising page and sharing it on social media. I'm so excited to be a part of someday ending NF! You can do it too. Please join me by donating, creating a fundraising page, or sharing this message on social media and through email.

Together we're #NFStrong,

Laila :) 

Every person that creates a fundraising page and raises $100 or more will have their choice of either a 2017 NF Champion medal or a Together We're #NFStrong t-shirt.
