NF Hero Stories
Thank you for sharing your NF Hero story
The Children’s Tumor Foundation works to increase knowledge of neurofibromatosis (NF), and you - our NF Heroes - have an important role to play.
We’re looking to gather as many NF Hero stories as possible for possible future use on the CTF website, newsletters, social media, patient brochures, advocacy efforts, and more. NF may be complicated, but these stories help us better explain what NF is and how it impacts millions of people around the world.
Every story of NF is important. We want to know you--your personality, what you do, and what you wish for. Thank you for sharing your story with us!
