NF Midwest provides Camp New Friends with funds to make it affordable for all kids with NF from the Midwest. No child from our region is left behind.
NF Midwest supports and sends children with neurofibromatosis to Camp New Friends a camp run by the Brainy Camps Association which is a subsidiary of Children’s National Health System.
The camp is nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountains of West Virginia, on the grounds of Timber Ridge Camp, 90 miles west of Washington, DC. It runs every year for one week in July.
Going to Camp New Friends creates memories and support that last a lifetime! NF Midwest is proud to sponsor children with neurofibromatosis to Camp New Friends in West Virginia each summer. Spending a week at camp with peers and adults who live productive lives with neurofibromatosis gives hope to campers for their future. Campers share how Camp New Friends is the highlight of their summer, how awesome it is to be with kids just like themselves, where they don’t feel different. This experience helps them to learn more about their neurofibromatosis, increase self-esteem, improve social skills and personal responsibility, all in a supportive, fun filled environment.

There are a lot of big corporate charities out there that talk about how much they help people, but when we were looking for answers we did not get the help from them. It was NF Midwest that helped us. So it is important to me to get the word out about NF and NF MIdwest so that no other family has to feel as alone as we were when we were searching for answers. WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE TO NF MIDWEST INSTEAD OF THE OTHER GUYS???? To me the answer is simple. They care! Sometimes in life companies or charities get so big that they forget about why they are doing anything to begin with, they forget about the people they are suppose to help. Nf Midwest is NOT this way. They are there for those affected by NF and for their families. Sometimes in life bigger is not better. Our family likes to say that "NF Midwest is Small enough to care...Big enough to make a difference" And I am telling you that my family and others I know in my area that means a lot more then we could say. So please consider helping us in our NF cause and donate to this walk and NF Midwest!
