Story

McKenna
My daughter McKenna has NF-1 and it has started causing her problems in the last month. She has tumors in her neck and is currently being seen by several Doctor's. The type of tumors that she has isn;t cancer but can cause a lot of pain, and can be very scary. McKenna has NF-1 like her sister Kyra that is getting cards from a NF-1 brain tumor. McKenna is facing surgery and many appts. She is very scared and worried. McKenna loves helping her sister open cards and I as her mother would love to see McKenna open her own cards and see she has a big team supporting her.
