MAY 8 IS MATES DAY
BECOME A CLASSROOM THAT CARES
Each person with NF is unique, which should be celebrated, but as we all know, being different is not always easy and it is not always fair. Children with NF can develop differently from their peers, which can lead to feelings of isolation, anxiety and even depression.
We want to level the playing field, reduce incidence of bullying and help educate kids on what it means to live with NF.
We are reaching out to day-care centres and schools across the country to become a “classroom that cares”. By registering your school and working with us to foster an atmosphere of acceptance amongst the student body, we will not only improve the lives of those battling this condition, but teach every student about the power of compassion to change a life.
