To move our knowledge of NF forward many people are needed to participate in research.
There are many ways to participate in neurofibromatosis research. Some may be more invasive such as a clinical trial testing a medication. Some may simply involve answering questions or letting a researcher examine you and follow your case. Some research may provide the benefit of extra care and expertise and may provide vital testing such as MRIs at no cost to the patient. All research advances our understanding of neurofibromatosis to lead to better treatments, more knowledge of how a patient may be affected, and to an eventual cure.

Why should I participate in research?
NF Midwest is a wonderful resource for us right here. They raise funds for local research clinics. They provide excellent NF informational packets and web based educational programs so people with NF in their lives can learn about the newest medical information and research discoveries about NF. They organize many fun events throughout our area for adults, children, and families to enjoy, to meet others, to share their story, and find support through friendships made. NF Midwest, as a smaller more local foundation, can provide support in a more personal way that is also very important to our well-being and hope.
