Megan’s Story

28 May 2020

My name is Megan. I'm 19 and I was diagnosed with NF1 and mild Scoliosis when I was 11. My NF1 was discovered when I was seeing my paediatrician for something completely different. I'm forever greatful to him for knowing about the condition and recognising it as otherwise, I still may not have known about it to this day. 

Since my diagnosis, they've discovered through MRI scans some fibromas in my brain, which are being closely monitored by the amazing neurosurgery team at The Queen Elizabeth hospital. I'm always grateful for everything my doctors have done for me- they've kept me informed, reassured me and made sure that everything was explained to me in regards to treatment options.

Despite my NF1, I am living life to the full and doing the things that I love. I have a scary acting job, I'm studying to be a children's nurse and I'm making the best out of every day. NF1 is a part of who I am, but it doesn't define or control me and I hope that one day we will #EndNF
