About the Children's Tumor Foundation:
Founded in 1978, The Children's Tumor Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and well being of more than 100,000 Americans living with neurofibromatosis (NF). Our research program has played a key role in the discovery of the genes that cause NF, understanding the biology of NF, creation of The NF Clinic Network and preclinical screening of promising drug compounds to treat the disorder.
NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerve endings throughout the body. Occurring in 1-3,000 births, NF is more prevalent than cystic fibrosis, Huntington's disease and Duchenne muscular dystrophy combined. Ranging in severity, NF can lead to loss of vision and hearing, disfigurement, skeletal defects, learning disabilities and various forms of cancer, including juvenile leukemia.
