Thanks to all who donated to our first Boston Marathon run. Still time for those who missed out!  See more

THE STORY:

It is a great opportunity to join the Neurofibromatosis (NF) Boston Marathon team and run in the city where a sprit of independence defined the history of a nation!

NF as a genetic disorder can leave a shadow of uncertainty over the health of so many children.

Help us raise awareness of NF, get better diagnosis and fund vital research. In my first year as a family we hope to exceed our $5,000 goal with the generosity of friends, family and colleagues.

Please forward this link to anyone who you think would wish to support this worthy cause.

If you would prefer to use a check please make your donation to :  NF Inc, Northeast.  Mailing address:  9 Bedford St. Burlington MA 01803.  Some employers will match employee donations - please inquire.

With grateful thanks,

Lydia, Nicolas, Cecilia and James

Neurofibromatosis Incorporated Northeast wrote -

Neurofibromatosis (pronounced neuro-fibroma-tosis) is a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to form on the nerves anywhere in or on the body at any time. NF is associated with disfigurement, learning disabilities, deafness, vision impairment, epilepsy and cancer. At this time, there is no effective treatment or cure for NF. NF affects three times as many people as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis combined, yet many people have never even heard of it. We need to change that!

The mission of Neurofibromatosis, Northeast is to find the cure for NF by promoting scientific research, creating awareness, and supporting those who are affected by NF.
