BECOME A PARTNER

Our partners play a significant role in helping us continue working towards our goal — to Conquer NF.

An integral part of our efforts is to reach as many Australians as possible to create awareness of the impact of Neurofibromatosis, and how this could affect anyone, at any time.

Partners share our vision, provide vital financial support, in-kind goods and services (and sometimes even personnel resources) to help us create powerful awareness campaigns and support services.

PATRON

The Hon Nick Greiner AC

The Children's Tumour Foundation (CTF) would like to publicly recognise and thank the continued commitment of it's Patron, The Hon Nick Greiner AC.

Mr Greiner was Premier and Treasurer of New South Wales from 1988-1992 and, since retiring from politics, has been heavily involved in the corporate world, as well as many charitable causes

In 2014, Mr Greiner was appointed as Patron of the CTF. Since then, his willingness to be involved, his availability to our community, staff and Directors, as well as his passion for the organisation to succeed have been extraordinary. 

Mr Greiner is an ideal person with whom to discuss advocacy. He has personally provided the CTF with assistance to spread awareness about NF and openly talk about the challenges that community face with this condition. The CTF continues to work closely with Mr Greiner to ensure we can deliver outcomes and look for ways to engage with local and Federal government. 

Most recently, Mr Greiner joined us in for the Annual Thank You event at Parliament House in December 2019 to assist us in bestowing the honour of Honorary Life Patronage to John Hughes. 

The CTF is a very special organisation caring as it does for children and adults with Neurofibromatosis, posing particular challenged for all connected. Both it's research assistance and it's support networks are invaluable"



honorary LIFE PATRON

John Hughes 

John has been the heart and soul of Children’s Tumour Foundation (CTF) for over 10 years. In late 2019, John retired from his position as Chairman to help care for his wife Robyn and father-in-law Tom. In recognition of the decade of support and commitment to the organisation, John was awarded the CTF’s first Honorary Life Member Patron award.

It is safe to say that John has played a pivotal role in making the CTF what it is today. From a small organisation struggling to survive to one that now provides an extensive range of national services and supports specialised clinics in four major hospitals. John has always gone above and beyond for the NF community and with Robyn has personally co-funded with the Listorti family, an entire specialist NF clinic, the ‘Centre for Translational Research and Complex Care’ at Royal North Shore Hospital.

John’s wealth of knowledge and personal commitment enabled CTF to grow and provide a national service that assists some 10,000 Australians impacted by Neurofibromatosis each year. John’s inspiration came from his mum Shirley suffering with NF and it leading to her death. His work is as a legacy to her and all those others who suffer from and are impacted by NF.

His work has brought an entire community out of the shadows, creating an organisation that “celebrates difference” and “acceptance” whilst also providing critically important support services.

Thanks to John, the CTF has built a safe environment for the NF Community where they can build connections, increase wellbeing, and reduce the incidence of social isolation.

Robyn has worked closely alongside John and has also been a tremendous contributor to the organisation with countless hours of volunteering and providing shared services support. Together they have been the major benefactors to the organisation as well as being the key fundraisers.

Without John, wonderfully supported by Robyn, the CTF would not be where it is today, and we hope to continue to build on the legacy they have created and one day conquer NF.
