Upcoming Benefit in Detroit

We are are humbled and honored to receive the Children's Tumor Foundation's 2014 Strength and Honor Award at the BeNeFit II in Detroit next Saturday, November 22nd. Little Philip and Helen have their super hero outfits ready to go and their parents and grandparents have some super hero accessories to reveal on the big night as well!

As so many of you know, our journey with Neurofibromatosis (NF) continues to be one of anxiety and emotional exhaustion as we struggle to anticipate and manage the unknown future for our son, while maintaining a willingness to thrive as a family in the face of NF. We have a rather bird's eye view of the promising clinical research in progress due to our incredible medical team headed up by Dr. Bruce R. Korf. Dr. Korf is a wealth of knowledge and provides us with a regular dose of hope and encouragement that a cure really is possible in our children's lifetime. We are thankful to Dr. Korf for his nomination of our family for this special award.

 But that cure is only possible with the support of research provided through the Children's Tumor Foundation. As you approach the end of the 2014 year, if you have the desire to have a lasting impact on the future of our children's health and the health of over 3 million people worldwide living with NF, please consider making a donation today. We would love to know how to acknowledge your support by your designating your gift in honor of our family but there is the option to remain anonymous as well.  Simply click on the BeNeFit II image below to make your donation.  

This BeNeFit II will be a joyful event for our family because of the hope and encouragement of everyone in our lives that loves us so well through your prayers and encouragement. We are also thankful to the Jennifer and Dan Gilbert for their generosity in hosting this important event again this year.  If you don't know Jennifer and Dan Gilbert, you should.  We have had the pleasure of learning more about this amazing family over the last few months and their ability to intertwine their business success with their passion for supporting philanthropic endeavors close to their hearts.   We very much look forward to meeting the Gilberts and thanking them for this opportunity and their tremendous support for NF research.    

We look forward to sharing our experience with you in some very special ways following the event so stay tuned!  As always, thank you for being a part of Team Moss as we work towards a cure for NF in our children's lifetime.
