I'm not alone! I'm not hidden behind closed doors. Doctors take me serious now about my pain and aches! I can now talk about my neurofibromatosis and not be told "live with it". I have others to talk to now about my fears and anxiety. I have a doctor to go to who has been train specifically to deal with my NF. And he is genuine in his concern to help me and others who suffer with NF. Its not in my head. It can now be seen on MRI'S. I'm not alone. There's a whole community I can turn to. Thank you for this website. Thank you for I'm no longer alone.

It's been the one place I truly can find help and hope for a better future.. This place is more like family than anything else.. they truly want to find a cure and unlike someplace (aka goodwill) the profits go where they need to be.. (like goodwill head people)... these people real care and out reach to help find the right sources a person need... we need more support and more help and need the recognition like any other non profit groups.. aka the cancer society . . Because even this diease has cancer among the people my mom and identical twin died from brain cancer.. NFL needs more donations to function and move forward so they can help more people.. I cannot say enough about the help and hope given here...

They always keep the NF community up to date with all the newest procedures and tests relating to NF and the problems it causes. Whenever we need information they are my first resource on how to get what i need for my family.
