National Volunteer Appreciation Week takes on a completely new meaning this year, our 40th anniversary of the Foundation. The National Neurofibromatosis Foundation, or NNFF, as Children’s Tumor Foundation was originally known, was born out of a patient venting her frustration to her clinician in 1978. Lynne Courtemanche, an RN, was the patient and Dr. Allan Rubenstein, the clinician. “There ought to be a place for people like me,” said Lynne and Dr. Rubenstein’s simple reply was, “So why don’t you start one?” And so she did.
We are very proud to announce that the Children’s Tumor Foundation has been ranked as one of the best nonprofit organizations to work for by the leading publication for nonprofit management, The Nonprofit Times. This annual ranking is dedicated to finding and recognizing the best employers in the nonprofit industry.
