"Our mission is to provide public awareness and patient support for New York State families directly affected by Neurofibromatosis."
Neurofibromatosis encompasses a set of distinct genetic disorders that cause tumors to grow along various types of nerves and, in addition, can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones and skin. Neurofibromatosis causes tumors to grow anywhere on or in the body. Neurofibromatosis (NF) has been classified into three distinct types: NF1, NF2 and Schwannomatosis.
NF R.A.C.E.R.S. is a non-profit organization which works to raise funds to provide public awareness and patient support for families directly affected by neurofibromatosis. If you, a family member, or someone you know, have been diagnosed with NF and needs financial help, please contact us.
