NF Connect

We're taking nf support sessions online!

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Children’s Tumour Foundation has been forced to place all upcoming events on hold. This has meant we have had to rethink the way we can maintain our connection and support with the NF community and given us the opportunity to create a new program - NF Connect!

what is nf connect?

NF Connect is an opportunity for members of our community to virtually connect with one another and our Support Team to help alleviate some of the stresses, fears and anxieties they may be experiencing. It is an opportunity to check-in, catch up and exchange information with one another from the comfort of your own home.

We will be running these sessions monthly over the next 12 months, facilitated by members of the CTF Support Team.

With three sessions each month there's space for everyone! See below to find the right fit for you.

NF Connect for Teens

Date: Monday 20th July

Time: 8.00pm (AEST)

We have decided to split up teens and young adults into two different groups, and will rotate between the two each month.

NF Connect for Teens is designed for people with NF aged between 13-18 years old. We will look at topics such as the transition to high school, bullying, studying techniques and much more. 

NF Connect for Young Adults

Date: Monday 10th August

Time: 8.00pm (AEST)

We have decided to split up teens and young adults into two different groups, and will rotate between the two each month.

NF Connect for Young Adults is for people aged between 18-30 years old. This is a great space to connect with others of the same age and form meaningful friendships.

NF Connect for Adults

Date: Wednesday 22nd July
