Raising Awareness for Genetic Disorder that affects 1 in 3,000

NEW YORK – May 2, 2016 – The Children’s Tumor Foundation announced its annual month-long campaign to raise awareness about neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. It affects 1 in 3,000 people of all populations; there is currently no treatment or cure.

Through numerous community events held during the month of May, as well as online activities, Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month and “I Know a Fighter” aim to draw attention to the inspirational and remarkable stories of those living with NF, who are fighters in every sense of the word. A new part of the initiative this year will be “Born a Fighter,” a component that will empower those living with NF to acknowledge their own strength and resilience.

Shine a Light Social GraphicShine a Light on NF is a grassroots initiative that brings NF awareness into the community by lighting up buildings, bridges and monuments in blue and green.

In 2015, you went into your community and secured 40 landmarks across the country and around the world! Places like Niagara Falls, the Seattle Great Wheel and the Zakim Bridge all glowed blue and green on May 17th!

For NF Awareness Month 2016, we've created tools to make outreach even easier. Download the flyer and the graphic, and shine a light on NF in your community!
