Nikaury Portalatin Peña is an intelligent and loving 18-year-old young lady from La Romana, Dominican Republic. Nikaury was born with a benign disease known as Neurofibrosarcoma, which is the development of tumors that develop in the cells surrounding the peripheral nerves. Neurofibrosarcoma is considered a soft tissue sarcoma- cancer that originates in soft tissue. There is no known cause for the disease, studies show that genetics may play a role in the formation of soft tissue sarcoma. Tumors can range in size and location and can cause difficulty walking, using arms, legs, hands, and feet. New tumors growing on her Neck and Face and a huge tumor growing on Nikaury’s back has made her life very difficult and painful.
