For Jackie, having NF represents who she is today.

Having NF has its ups and downs due to her experience with having cancer at the age of 14. She is almost13 years cancer free.

The struggles she had during school have not stopped her from success. She is thriving and continues to pursue her academic and career goals.

Jackie said, “I have such an amazing support around me that I’m thankful for everyday. I have met so many other young and older adults who have NF as well and it’s an amazing feeling to be able to connect with them and not feel alone.”
