Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the lives of people with NF.
Continued education is especially important for families and individuals with NF because NF is a complex, highly variable disorder with complications that change throughout life.
NF Midwest aims to enable every individual and family challenged by NF to be well armed with knowledge and information so they can be a strong partner in their care and an advocate for their condition.
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.
