Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month is NOW -- Let's create some awareness!

Ideas for NF Awareness Month
Wear the Children's Tumor Foundation blue and green NF awareness wristband all month. Wristbands can be obtained by emailing Rosa Perez at rperez@ctf.org.

Create a fundraiser to benefit NF research. You can do any number of things, including: approach your Human Resources department about letting employees wear jeans to work if they
make a $5 donation to the Children's Tumor Foundation; host a bake sale or lemonade stand; and ask a local restaurant or bar to donate part of its proceeds on a particular night.

Put the "About NF" flyer in your community (workplace, public library, popular coffee shops,
civic center bulletin boards, grocery stores, etc.) and pass flyer out to friends and
coworkers. Get the flyer here.
