Libby Returns to the Doctors
NF Midwest community member, Libby Huffer, will appear for the third time on The Doctors on Monday, January 15th. Check your local guides for the time! The Doctors is a talk show in which team of medical professionals discusses a wide range of health-related topics.
Like many adults with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), Libby has thousands of tumors, or dermal neurofibromas, on her skin. This is one of many possible complications with NF1.
In 2016, Libby had hundreds of tumors removed and the whole experience was shared on the show. This new episode will show a recent visit for additional surgery, plus a makeover reveal!
Libby is the founder of the public Facebook group Faces of Neurofibromatosis which dramatically expands on NF Midwest’s Faces of NF brochure by allowing people from around the world share their “faces” and stories with the world. The Faces of Neurofibromatosis group now has almost 5,000 members who all are affected by NF! The group rallies around the motto that “if we’re not seen, we can’t be heard”!
Watch a preview of Monday’s episode HERE, including a priceless reaction from Libby’s daughter Lindsey, from the “big reveal”. We can’t wait to see it!
