About This Activity

While you may not have heard of Neurofibromatosis (NF), it is estimated to occur 1 in 3,000 births. NF can cause tumors to grow on the nerves anywhere at any time. It also commonly causes learning disabilities and can cause seizures, cancer, bone deformities, hearing loss, blindness, ADD, high blood pressure and much more.  Another benefit to helping with NF research is also helping our soldier. Why? Pain management, wound healing, inflammation and blood vessel growth, orthopedic abnormalities and amputation, and it’s also said that the MRI volumetric imaging could have broad applications in military use. Help us raise much needed funds for NF. For more information about Neurofibromatosis please visit or
