Be a Servant Leader in Under 2 Minutes – #MNNFWalk for a Cure
August 12, 2013 1 Comment
There is nothing better than being in the presence of THIS beautiful 5-year-old. I know, I have had the honor many times. She is my friend and her name is Jacqueline. I took this picture while we were engaged in an innovative conversation about what kind of pirate she would like to be. To make it even more colorful, we were on our way to Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Jacqueline is imaginative, intelligent and has an infectious laugh, all of which make her great to be around. But there is something more that you would never know by simply looking. Jacqueline, has a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis (a.k.a. “NF”) , which causes tumors to grow in the nervous system and currently there is no cure. From what we know, Jacqueline has the following:
- * ♥ A myopic glioma (tumors growing inside the brain which can result in blindness.)
- * ♥ An abnormal mass on her tongue and on the back of her head.
- * ♥ Irregular bone growth of the arm
Servant leadership is one of the greatest gifts we can give to others. Being of service is not only politically correct, but being present for others has the power to be a healer, connector, teacher and a friend. In addition, it feels good! Please take 2 minutes to put that competency to work by clicking below to participate. With your help we can find a cure.
