Wishing for a future CURE and better CARE now.

NF Midwest Dream Team

The Dream Team is for people who have a great interest in supporting the mission of NF Midwest. Dream Team members receive frequent emails regarding the organization needs and are invited to bi-monthly meetings to discuss the programs of NF Midwest and the overall needs of our community. We are looking for those committed to volunteering their time and skills in different ways to help make an impact.

There are jobs big and small and a niche for everyone who really wants to help, but we are looking for individuals who have the dedication to participate on a regular basis and who are able to respond to communications in a timely manner.

If this sounds like something you may want to participate in, please fill out the form below to express your level of interest, availability and what life and professional skills your could add to the team.

People Are Talking

Today I had the chance to get together with a friend that I haven't seen in quite some time, and we managed to talk for three hours about our boys, ages 9 and 12, both with NF1. On my way home, I thought about how blessed I have been and the blessing that has been NF Midwest. My family's lives have been tremendously impacted by the NF Midwest family.  That's truly what they have become to us-family.  Earlier this spring, we had the opportunity to go to the NF Midwest office in St. Charles, IL.  I'm not quite sure what I expected, but there were only three people running this organization that serves NF families in six states! Little did I realize that this visit would lead to the biggest adventure in all of my son 9 years, as he got to go to NF camp in Virginia. Not a day goes by since he came home that camp isn't mentioned. Even more remarkable than that is that those campers’ experiences were made possible by people who just want to make a difference. Making positive differences in the lives of people with NF is ultimately what NF Midwest represents to me. Of course, their contributions to research are extraordinary, and our family has seen first-hand how wonderful camp can be, but I am just as moved when I see a simple message from the staff at NF Midwest offering thoughts and support for someone who is scared and anxious about a test result. The uncertainties of NF can be too much for people to bear and can leave them feeling powerless (yes, I am speaking from personal experience). Our participation in NF Midwest has helped us take some of that power back, and has given us hope.
