Shine A Light on NF
Nerve Tumours UK, the leading voice and support network for people living with NF in the United Kingdom, needs your support.
Help us Shine A Light on World NF Day in 2024, as we highlight and campaign for access to the medical and non-medical care that is needed by those affected with NF, the group name for Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1), NF2-related-Schwannomatosis (NF2) and Schwannomatosis (SWN) .
In association with the Children’s Tumor Foundation USA, we are excited to announce the return of the “Shine A Light on NF” campaign to raise awareness for NF by lighting up landmarks and buildings on World NF Awareness Day - May 17.
We want to raise awareness to help those living with nerve tumours, so they receive the correct support, and to campaign for funding for better services.
World NF Awareness Day falls on Friday 17 May in 2024
We are asking iconic landmarks, buildings & homes to light up blue for NF patients worldwide. We are providing Social Media Toolkits to all willing organisations to showcase why they are lighting up, along with case studies, donation links and many other ways to support patients with NF, on the upcoming awareness day. Join us this year on World NF1 Day on 17 May and World NF2 Day on 22 May.
A special relationship
This will mark the eighth year that Nerve Tumours UK have joined the campaign, reinforcing our continued partnership with Children's Tumor Foundation in the United States. We are very pleased to be part of this excellent, global initiative.Check out CTF's campaign page
