At the Children’s Tumor Foundation, we’re dedicated to bettering the lives of the over 2.5 million people living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF can lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning disabilities, disabling pain, and cancer. Affecting 1 in every 3,000 people, NF occurs more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined.
We want to end NF as fast as we can by connecting the unconnected, leading the way with a strategy that applies innovative and inventive approaches to scientific advancement and improved patient care. This pioneering approach attracts the brightest minds in research and industry to NF, revamps systems so as to accelerate the pathway from discovery to treatment, and includes the voice of the patient every step of the way.
About Children’s Tumor Foundation
The Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding effective treatments for neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and may lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning disabilities, disabling pain, and cancer. NF affects 1 in every 3,000 people. CTF funds critical research into NF. In addition to benefiting those who live with NF, this research is shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefiting the broader community.
