One in three thousand people are living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and disabling pain. Currently there is no cure and no effective treatments for NF, but we’re walking to change that.
