Research brings promise to the future! Awareness brings hope now!
You can become an activist and help raise awareness for NF. We have included here some tools to help. You may also contact the office about other ways to raise awareness.
Everyone has a story about how NF has impacted their lives. It may be that you have a child with NF or schwannomatosis; you may be affected; you may have seen the struggles of a friend; or maybe you just passed someone who has NF at a grocery store.
If you share that story on social media, through email or in a conversation with friends then you raise awareness.
You can take it a giant step further by creating a fundraising and awareness page on Firstgiving and sharing that with the world.How to Set-Up Firstgiving

For my family, getting involved with NF Midwest and fundraising really helped us on so many levels. We met other families who we could really relate to, our daughter met other kids with NF and we stayed informed and continued to learn about the disease. Also by fundraising, we knew we could help make a difference for the cause. NF Midwest has been a true support to us over the years.
