  • 1.  Neurofibromatosis - Materials to teach other students in class

    Posted 11-02-2022 10:18
    I have a 5th grade student with a history of neurofibromatosis, that just started an oral chemotherapy agent for tumor reduction properties. I am trying to find materials to share with the student's class to describe neurofibromatosis and also materials to describe possible changes for a student on chemotherapy (but that does not include cancer).

    Consider reaching out to this organization for the items you are looking for.

    You could also ask the healthcare provider who is providing this child's care for resources.
    Good luck to you.
