Oil

NF affects the entire family. Henry is lucky to have his younger brother Fred who is always by his side. They are the best of friends when they aren’t punching each other. Fred has always gone to the NF appointments and helped with the NF fundraising. Some day, Fred may have to be the one to fight for Henry if his NF takes a turn for the worse. Both of my sons are fighters and I know together they will take care of each other.
