We form one part of a global community working to improve awareness and deepen understanding of Neurofibromatosis, while raising much needed funds to support better treatment options and enable access to critical support services. What better way to do that, than by aligning ourselves with the international community in this very simple way.
It’s safe to say things look a little different this year. We’ve revamped our website, changed our colours, not to mention social isolation! But the fight to conquer NF still goes on! With a little creative thinking and the help of technology, we can still come together and raise awareness of neurofibromatosis from the comfort of our own home!
We have created a new range of shareable social media solutions that will help get you started. Click to download.
