Child Interests

Anaya loves Barbies, unicorns, the colour pink, princesses and rainbows.


Anaya is 3 years old and currently undergoing chemotherapy for an optic nerve tumour. She has global development delay also and pulmonary stenosis due to her Noonan syndrome. She’s a happy little girl and everyone who meets her can’t help but fall in love with her.

The signs of her nf1 developed at 6 weeks old when cafe-au-lait spots appeared on her skin. This is the first indication of nf (neurofibromas). Genetic tests were done and months later Anaya was officially diagnosed with nf1. After further tests and due to her facial appearance she was also diagnosed with Noonan syndrome which is the cause of her pulmonary stenosis.

As nf1 causes tumours children have regular ophthalmology appointments to look out for optic nerve tumours. During her examination the doctor discovered that her optic nerve was not normal and she was referred for an MRI in November of 2021. Weeks after we were told that 2 tumours were found, the most concerning was the optic nerve tumour. Where it is situated on the optic nerve she would have gone completely blind in both eyes so it was strongly suggested to start her on chemotherapy. Anaya started in January 2022 and the treatment lasts 18 months.
