NF Midwest C.A.R.E.S.!
NF Midwest has been a true blessing. My husband and my son have Neurofibromatosis . We didn't know who to talk to for doctors and support. My husband has NF 1, he is a Veteran . And goes to VA hospital. Our son has NF 1. He has had to have surgeries to remove fibros . We have run into many obstacles. As NF family we need to talk to people who have gone threw what we were, emotionally. Physical and financially . Without support of NF Midwest I don't know where we be now.
