Way to go Team 2ADDIS! Raising awareness and funds for NF

Ask the Doctors

We had over 40 NF affected adults, parents of children. and families members for our annual Ask the Doctor's event on April 18th, 2010.

Ask the Doctors Indy 2014

NF Midwest was pleased to sponsor this very informative Q & A session with two of Riley Hospital's NF specialists Dr. Lisa Smith, Pediatric Neurology and Dr. Michael Ferguson, Pediatric Oncology/Hematology. This year's session also included a craft and game room for NF patients and their siblings. This gave the children a chance to interact with other NF patients and have some fun on their own! Supervision provided by an older sister of a patient and her good friend.
