Taylor was diagnosed with Neurofribromatosis when she was only 6-months of age. Hearing this news was very difficult for Theresa and she did everything she could to find out the most information about this disease. Theresa spent the last 25 years planning fundraisers and donating money and time to The Children's Tumor Foundation. It was really near and dear to her heart to not only raise awareness for this disease, but also to find a cure.  

Neurofibromatosis (NF1) causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF1 affects about 1 in 3,000 people throughout the world. About 50% of people with NF1 also have learning challenges. Softening and curving of bones, and scoliosis may occur in some patients with NF1. Occasionally, tumors may develop in the brain, on cranial nerves, or on the spinal cord. While NF tumors are generally not cancerous, they may cause health problems by pressing on nearby body tissue. Sometimes a benign tumor may become malignant (cancerous), but most people with NF1 will never develop a malignant tumor. NF1 is usually diagnosed in childhood.

In lieu of flowers for her memorial service this Tuesday, please make a donation in her memory. Any donation will help make an impact and we know it would mean the world to Theresa and her family. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this charity. Theresa's services will be Tuesday, January 29th at 4-6:30pm at Charles Dewhirst Funeral Home In Methuen, Massachusetts. 

More information about Children's Tumor Foundation: Founded in 1978, the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF) began as the first grassroots organization solely dedicated to the goal of finding treatment for NF. Today, CTF is a highly recognized national nonprofit foundation, the leading force in the fight to end NF, and a model for other innovative research endeavors.
