Jade's daughter Evie is six years old and was diagnosed with NF last year. Evie is the first in her family to have this condition and is the inspiration for Jade's fundraising. So far, Evie's only symptoms are her cafe au lait marks and a couple of fibromas, she is flourishing at school and a keen soccer player. It is the uncertainty of this condition that scares Jade's family the most. They don't know what the future holds for their beautiful girl.
Originally, Jade was only going to attend the NF hero family day with her family in the hopes of connecting with other families but upon registration, she was given the fundraising page too. So she decided to participate with the hope of raising awareness of this condition and hopefully some funds to aid in research.
When Jade was deciding her challenge, she was thinking about her biggest fears. But she realised that it's not about her, it's about Evie. So she did something to honour her instead. Evie has always been a unique character, so bright and bubbly with an infectious smile. For someone so young she is incredibly kind and generous. That is where 31 days of kindness was born, why not be like Evie? The flow-on effect of this kindness and positivity is amazing!
