The Children’s Tumor Foundation is the world’s leading nonprofit dedicated to funding and driving innovative research that will result in effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with NF, a group of genetic disorders that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. One in every 3,000 people is born with some type of neurofibromatosis or schwannomatosis, which may lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning disabilities, disabling pain, or cancer. NF affects all populations equally, and while there one approved treatment for a small subset of NF patients, the vast majority have no treatment options, and there is no cure yet.

“I am deeply grateful and humbled to have the support of the Board of the Children’s Tumor Foundation to serve as its Chair,” said Gabriel Groisman. “CTF is a place where one finds both hope and solutions for the rare genetic disorder NF, which affects millions worldwide. Everyone involved – from patients and families to researchers and medical professionals and pharma/biotech, from donors and volunteers to the staff and to the Board – they are the most incredible and passionate people you’ll ever meet, and together we are absolutely determined to find treatments and cures for NF. Our loved ones with NF are fighters, but they do not fight alone.”

Mr. Groisman succeeds the previous Board Chair, Tracy Galloway, who is now Chair Emeritus and a member of the Executive Committee. The CTF Board of Directors expresses its profound appreciation to Ms. Galloway for her many, and continued, years of service to CTF and the NF cause.

The Board has also selected Liz Rodbell as Vice Chair, RB Harrison as Secretary, and Randall Stanicky as Treasurer.

The mission of the Children’s Tumor Foundation is to drive research, expand knowledge, and advance care for the NF community. Its vision is to End NF.
