NF Real Life: “Please still fund research! Both my children and I suffer with NF1, my daughter presents with the worst symptoms in our family. She has had 5 surgeries and is only 9. More surgeries are in her future. Tumors growing back and new ones are found. It’s a never ending battle. No child should have to live like this. “

I loved this book! It is chock full of instruction on how to create healthy eating habits in children. The author gives day-to-day examples of how she is raising healthy eaters. I have incorporated many ideas and they really worked with brood. Particularly, one super picky ten-year old. You will not be disappointed a good read.

The Happiness List
Here at LTF, we admire Daphne Oz’s book, Relish. It covers every aspect of wellness from food and nutrition, to relationships and everyday life. One thing that really stood out to us was her happiness list. She explains the list to be about things that spark your inner joy; something that puts a smile on your face and brings upon those moments you will remember forever. it is important to recognize these moments in life so you can look for them and embrace it.
Take the time to write a few things down (does not matter how big or small your list is). Sometimes writing something out will help you better see the whole picture. You will start to realize that what you write down is the result of taking chances and not letting opportunities pass you by. So give your happiness list a starting place. Do not wait for the moments to come to you, create them, because experiencing the things that make you the most happy are good for you and your well-being.
We made a happiness list for the foundation. When putting it together we thought about what truly made us feel accomplished.
Littlest Tumor Foundation’s Happiness List:
For us, connecting with our inner joy is working hard, taking the chances on the foundation that we do, and then seeing the impact it has on individuals and families. We try taking advantage of every opportunity and chance we have for the NF community.
What makes you happy? When someone offers you the chance to experience something new, bring your family together, or to just relax in the crazy times in life, do not be afraid to take it. Fill your life with happy memories and times that warm your heart because these are the moments we live for so why not experience more of them. Please share some things that make you happy!
