Children's Tumor Foundation

Walk to help end NF!
Walk to help end NF!

The Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the millions living with neurofibromatosis (NF). NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and affects one in 3,000 people of all populations. Today, there is no cure for NF.

Shine a Light NF Walk is the signature fundraising event of the Children’s Tumor Foundation, bringing NF out of the shadows and inspiring the community to come together to raise critical funds for NF research.

Do you enjoy helping at an event which raises money for a good cause? We are looking for dedicated volunteers to help set up, run and tear down our Shine a Light NF Walk.

About Children's Tumor Foundation

Location:

132 E. 43rd St.,, Suite 418, New York, NY 10017, US

Mission Statement

The Children's Tumor Foundation's mission is to drive research, expand knowledge, and advance care for the NF community.

Description

Neurofibromatosis, or NF, is a genetic disorder that affects one in every 3,000 people. It can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, and complications from NF can lead to disfigurement, deafness, blindness, skeletal abnormalities, learning disabilities, malignancies, and debilitating pain. NF affects all populations equally, and there is not yet a cure.

The Children’s Tumor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a term for three distinct disorders: NF1, NF2, and schwannomatosis. NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and may lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning disabilities, disabling pain, and cancer. NF affects 1 in every 3,000 births across all populations equally. There is no cure yet - but the Children’s Tumor Foundation mission of driving research, expanding knowledge, and advancing care for the NF community fosters our vision of one day ending NF.
