Neurofibromatosis: On the next episode of COPS!


I was minding my own business. I was going the speed limit and had my seat belt fastened. So, when I saw the flashing lights in my rear view mirror....I PANICKED.

My heart was racing....You all know what I'm talking about, when that dreaded police car gets behind you. I kept checking my mirrors, turned the radio down, and quieted Brooklyn who was chanting "Mommy's in trouble, Mommy's in trouble.
I signalled and pulled to the side of the road. I took a deep breath as I rolled the window down.


The smiling officer confused me. "How are you...Don't worry, you are not in trouble", he said looking over his sunglasses. "I wanted to ask you about the painting on your window."



He went on to tell me about his 4 yr old son being diagnosed and how confused and upset him and his wife were. We talked for a few minutes and I gave him my email address, facebook info and website address.

The feelings I had when I drove off were overwhelming. You never know when the chance to impact someone will come your way - how ready are YOU to talk about NF? You don't have to have a website, you don't need to be a professional speaker, all you need is an attitude of awareness. When you Thrive, we all Thrive.

Have an AWESOME weekend!
