NF Midwest C.A.R.E.S.!
4 years ago, my daughter was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis at the age of 4 months. I had never heard of it. I was given a brochure for NF Midwest from her doctor and I signed up for their symposium. Shortly thereafter, I received a call from the Director, Diana. She let me know that her husband and two children have NF as well. She asked if I had any questions, and let me know that they were there for us. I had just received shocking, frightening news about my infant child. I didn't know where to turn, and suddenly I had a place to go for answers and help. NF Midwest has been there for my family every step of the way. We are so grateful for the work they do, and proud to support it.
