She is talking about Neurofibromatosis today as well as her being a survivor of MPNST.

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a group of three conditions in which tumors grow in the nervous system.The three types are neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), and schwannomatosis.

In NF1 symptoms include light brown spots on the skin, freckles in the armpit and groin, small bumps within nerves, and scoliosis. In NF2 there may be hearing loss, cataracts at a young age, balance problems, flesh-colored skin flaps, and muscle wasting. The tumors are generally non-cancerous.

The cause is a genetic mutation in certain genes. In half of the cases these are inherited from a person’s parents while in the rest, they occur during early development.
The tumors involve supporting cells in the nervous system rather than the neurons.In NF1 the tumors are neurofibromas (tumors of the peripheral nerves), while in NF2 and schwannomatosis tumors of Schwann cells are more common.
Diagnosis is typically based on the signs and symptoms and occasionally supported by genetic testing.
