About NF Awareness Month

The Children’s Tumor Foundation celebrates NF Awareness Month and World NF Awareness Day (May 17th) for lots of reasons: to put NF in the national (and international) limelight, to foster hope in the NF community, and to create wonderful fundraising opportunities for the innovative NF research supported by Children’s Tumor Foundation.

Watch this video to see all the great things our community did to spread NF awareness in 2016.

Shine a Light on NF

Shine 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.


Obtaining a proclamation from your governor, mayor or city council is a wonderful way to raise awareness about NF. Click below for a toolkit and a list of the cities and states that are recognizing NF Awareness Month and World NF Awareness Day.
