Nadia will be attending the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s LA Walk for Neurofibromatosis (NF) on October 22, 2016. Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow throughout the body on nerves.
This event is more than just a walk in the park! This awesome event celebrates the brave NF Heroes who live with neurofibromatosis, and raises funds for critical NF research. Registration opens at 4:30 PM and the walk begins at 6:00 PM; the Glow in The Dark Afterparty is 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. After the walk, participants can bid on the chance to sing with their favorite celebrity during the Glow in The Dark Afterparty featuring celebrity karaoke.
The LA Walk for Neurofibromatosis will take place at the CBS Studio Center, 424 Radford Avenue, Studio City, CA.
Register on the Childen’s Tumor Foundation’s LA NF Glow Walk fundraising page.
One in three thousand people are living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and disabling pain. Currently there is no cure and no effective treatments for NF, but we’re walking to change that.
Nadia, along with Bryan Dattilo, James Reynolds, and Greg Meng from Days of our Lives, visited and made donations to the The Genesis House Women’s Shelter on November 18, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan.
Nadia and her team Nadia’s Cancer Crusaders have participated in the Light the Night Walk in southern California. To date, her team has raised more than $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, an organization near and dear to Nadia’s heart. Twenty years ago this year, Nadia’s father, Ulf Bjorlin Sr. passed away from leukemia. He was a renowned conductor, composer, and artist – and most importantly, a father and husband.
A note from Nadia…
Thank you all who have graciously agreed to donate your time and money to such an important cause. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has always been near and dear to my heart. My father passed away from Leukemia when I was 13 years old, so I’ve experienced firsthand how devastating a blood cancer can be, and how profoundly it affects family and friends of those diagnosed. An astounding 148,040 people this year alone will be diagnosed, that’s one person every 4 minutes and over 9% of all cancer diagnoses.
By participating in the “Light the Night” walk, we are not only raising awareness and money, but we are potentially saving many lives. So, let’s keep fighting cancer and honor our loved ones in the process. Thank you.
