The second annual Dance for NF (neurofibromatosis) was held in the Victoria Inn’s Grand Salon on May 3. This dance showcase featured guest dancers from Shirley’s Dance Studio in Winnipeg plus some delightful surprises — little people from Brandon’s Steppin Time Dance Studio dancing the tango.

MCs for the evening were Amber Vandale and Trent Bartley from STAR FM, with music provided by Howling the Night Away.

As I surfed through the NF website to try to find a simple definition of what neurofibromatosis is, I discovered that the affliction is far from simple. I found this quote which seems to capture a snapshot of what NF can be — different for every person affected: "Neurofibromatosis can cause tumours, cancer, disfigurement, seizures and other complications."

Tracy Gregorash is the executive director of a NF support group she started eight years ago. She founded the group as a way to connect families living with NF after her own son was diagnosed.
