Our vision is to end NF

The Children's Tumor Foundation's mission is to drive research, expand knowledge, and advance care for the NF community.

  

Research for a cure

Since its formation, the Children’s Tumor Foundation has been crucial to the development of solid scientific data about the genetic disorder neurofibromatosis (NF). Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, we are breaking through barriers and forging the pathway that will lead to a cure.
