Event Details

Kick off Melbourne Cup Day with a bang and join us at our annual Nepean Business Network Charity Breakfast, this year in support of the Childrens Tumour Foundation.

Penrith local and staff member of local business Greencross Coreen Avenue Vet, Jenni Elliott shared with us the story of her daughter Libby and her ongoing battle with NF (neurofibromatosis). Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a group of three genetic conditions which gives rise to the potential for benign tumours to grow on nerves anywhere in the body. NF also affects the development of other systems and tissues including; the cardiovascular system, bones, skin, brain, eyes, respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract and hormonal system.

The Childrens Tumour Foundation is very important to the Elliott family as Libby has been diagnosed now for 4 years and already had a brain surgery, a spinal surgery and a sinus surgery. CTF has been there every step of the way and their aim and the family’s aim is the same - To Conquer NF.

Jenni advised that within the Penrith Local Area, there are approximately 45 families in the same situation, with a family member suffering from NF.

The CTF is a not for profit charity that receives no government funding, and it is the only charity that helps support NF sufferers and their families.

If you would like more information in relation to the charity, please visit www.ctf.org.au.
