Across the country, the Children’s Tumor Foundation provides support to NF patients and famiLies, raising NF awareness and funds for research.
Neurofibromatosis, or NF, is a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 people. It causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, and can lead to deafness, blindness, disfigurement, bone abnormalities, learning disabilities, disabling pain, and cancer. NF occurs in all populations equally, and there is not yet a cure.
