Understanding NF
Program Description

An Educational Programming project. Neurofibromatosis, Inc., NE is a non profit organization incorporated (as Neurofibromatosis, Inc. Mass Bay Area) in 1988 by a group of people who were in some way affected by the genetic disorder known as neurofibromatosis (NF). The name NF, Inc., Northeast was adopted to better describe the area we serve. NF, Inc., NE enjoys a loose affiliation with a national organization, Neurofibromatosis, Inc.  and we are members of The National NF Coalition. The Mission of NF, Inc., NE is to find a treatment and the cure for neurofibromatosis by promoting scientific research, creating awareness, and supporting those who are affected by NF. In partnership with the National NF Coalition, we work with congressional representatives on both a local and national level to encourage continued and increased federal funding of NF research.
