Comments: We are planning on having our annual NF Strong walk on Sunday November 6, 2022. We are wanting to extend an invitation for you to join as our special guests. We missed you last year and wanted to give you more notice for this year's event. I am the head chair of the #NFStrong Walk for the Memphis area. My family and friends put our hearts and souls into this annual event as it grows bigger and bigger every year. I would like to invite you to join us. I was hoping your organization could send a few characters out to visit with our special needs families. Everyone's neurofibromatosis experience is unique.... My daughter Kaitlyn was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis (NF1) when she was a infant and she also was born with other handicaps. Kaitlyn is a seventeen year old fighting neurofibromatosis. One child out of every 2500 is born with NF. Neurofibromatosis is a chromosome disorder that can cause tumors to grow on the nerves throughout the body at anytime. NF is responsible for learning disabilities, seizures, hearing and vision loss, deformed bones,, scoliosis and many more difficulties. Kaitlyn has five lesions on the inside layers of her brain, one lesion on the outside of her skull, one between her brain! and her skull in the back of her head, one in her hip and one on her lung. In April 2015 she had a 6x9 tumor removed from the back of her head between her skull and scalp. MRIs have shown that the tumor has already grown back. NF has also given her epilepsy, scoliosis and learning delays. The goal of the #NFStrong Walk is to spread neurofibromatosis awareness and raise funds for NF Network Foundation, while also expanding the NF community. This is an event where everyone is welcome and it's okay to be different. We would be honored if you could join the fun at our Annual Memphis #NFStrong Walk on November 6, 2022! If you have any other questions feel free to contact myself or Ashley Sola with the NF Network. asola@nfnetwork.org More about the foundation and the walkhttps://www.nfnetwork.org/events/nfstrong/nfstrong-walk-memphis-tn-1?fbclid=IwAR2KAuguDqqjN5rKzHb5VpR1YDc7OiST5YO80l79UcYpw9XV7eGQhv3fvFA More about my daughter and her life with neurofibromatosis.curenf4kaitlyn.blogspot.com Referred by: You have come to this event in the past (before covid). We have seen you at several special needs events. You are always a HUGE hit! Rather you come to our event or not...Thank you for all the smiles you share with our special needs families!

  16. Hey all, Recently approved TK-13940 requesting access to the forum and event calendar Alex Darling Midsouth garrison member Memphis,Tn 501st webpage Requesting access as a full member so I can access all the event calendar and member threads.
  17. Hello, Thanks for having me. My name is Alex D. I have no 501st, Rebel Legion, or other costuming group affliation(s).... yet. I am currently in Memphis, TN I learned about you in my quest to find stormtrooper armor and how to get started in the garrison. I am requesting access because I would love to become involved and share the experience with others, both in fundraising events, and awareness at local cons. I would really like some input on size vs the type of trooper. I'm 5'10" and 235. Line backer shoulders with a gut. Lol. I've read that with modification, TK armor would fit, but I'm pretty green when it comes to builds. I work well off instructions, but getting parts and saying "ok, go" usualy turns into a failure. So... help me Midsouth garrison, you're probably my only hope. Now, on to look at more posts about armor. **Edit after searching - Ok, I've decided on TK armor, but where do I find kits for sale? No ebay. I've looked at Anovo, whitearmor.net and other forums, but most are either old posts or vague shady posts. Where do you guys get your armor? Or more specifically, from who?
