TWO Rocks Primary School threw its support behind a fundraiser for the Children’s Tumour Foundation.

A parent approached the school to raise awareness of neurofibromatosis as a family at the school has been affected by the cancer.

Student councillors arranged a ‘wear red’ day on February 16 and collected $379 in gold coin donations.

Neurofibromatosis is a condition where tumours grow in the nervous system causing learning disabilities, hearing or vision loss and/or chronic pain throughout the body.

Currently there is no cure, but treatment is available once it has been detected.
