"Thank you for donating to #OneMoreNurse Campaign, as a result of your donations I would like to introduce myself. I am Samantha Gaden and I am the Neurofibromatosis Specialist Advisor for Liverpool and the North West region. I have already started working with many adults, young families and I have been liaising with schools. I have worked with one young man who is having quite a lot of difficulties at school. I worked with the school to explain what difficulties that he might be having with Neurofibromatosis. We were then able to implement some changes and he is now having a much happier time at school.
I look forward to developing my role as Neurofibromatosis Nurse few months and updating you with my progress. It also important that we continue to donate to the #OneMoreNurse Campaign, so we can get more nurses across the country for young people and adults."
