A note from Foundation President and Chief Scientific Officer, Annette Bakker, PhD:

As President of the Children’s Tumor Foundation and on behalf of our Board of Directors and staff , we are enormously grateful to the Falic Family Foundation and Duty Free Americas (DFA) for organizing a spectacular golf and tennis fundraising tournament at the Weston Hills Country Club in South Florida on September 10, which raised $250,000 for the Foundation’s Synodos for NF1 initiative. DFA underwrote 100% of the cost of the event, and every dollar raised is also being matched dollar-for-dollar by Jim Bob and Laurée Moffett. This generosity will have tremendous impact on our major collaborative research effort – Synodos, designed, developed and managed by CTF – and will go a long way in helping advance the work we are doing to fight NF.

We are thankful for partners like the Falic Family, DFA, and the Moffett family. Their support encourages us all that one day we can together end NF.
