Thanksgiving Day Message From CTF President Annette Bakker

By November 25, 2021January 17th, 2024Featured


Dear All,

This year, 2021, I am dedicating my Thanksgiving Day message to all the heroes who commit all their passion and themselves to ending NF!

To our heroes – the patients – who courageously live with NF every day, but despite the challenges are still there to support other patients.

To our heroes – the siblings and parents – who have built the most amazing and loving support structure for our entire community.

To our heroes – the clinicians: doctors, nurses, genetic counselors, and more. Even when deployed to fight COVID-19 (or caught covid yourself), you were still there for our NF patients, spending late evening hours designing clinical trials, helping find the best treatments, recruiting patients so we can keep moving forward with research.

To our heroes – the volunteers: whether affected or unaffected by NF, you invest the most precious thing you have: time (and more!) – in order to help end NF

To our heroes – the donors, board members, the incredible CTF staff. Your tireless support keeps us running so that our mission and vision to END NF are met.

From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
