Let’s have a look at the inspiring life of a young girl having a strong soul with amazing positivity to life and bringing hope to everyone around her.

Lindsay can remember the day as clearly as if it happened today, the day when her little angel, Autumn was born. The doctors and all the attendants were shocked and rendered struggling for words after seeing the newborn, “Oh my god”, they cried.

Autumn was born with a disfigurement, due to a tumor on the right side of her face that pulled at the skin, giving it a badly drooping appearance. As she started growing, the tumor too grew bigger, until it pulled the skin so taut that it covered her eye completely.

She was diagnosed with a rare disease called Neurofibromatosis type I (NF I), which cause the growth of benign tumors along with the nervous system, on the skin, and in addition to that, patchy pigmentation appear on the skin.

Though NF I being a very rare medical case, Autumn is under proper medical supervision and being given many medications to shrink the size of the tumor. Lindsay says she has seen a lot of progress despite the lack of medical case studies about NF1.
