Virtual Christmas Donation Bucket

09 December 2020

The need for our services has never been greater than now.

Nerve Tumours UK provides vital medical care to thousands of people affected by Neurofibromatosis (NF) in the UK. Children, teenagers and adults often get misdiagnosed by medical professionals who are simply unaware of Neurofibromatosis, despite it being one of the most common neuro-genetic conditions.

With half of all people with Nerve Tumours having no previous family history of NF, it can happen to anyone. Our Specialist NF Nurses provide expert medical care for families, carers and friends affected by NF throughout the UK. This year our income has been drastically reduced with many fundraising events being cancelled. Nonetheless, we kept our promise and welcomed 2 Specialist NF Nurses to the team.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone. That’s why, this Christmas, we’re asking for any small donations you can spare for our Christmas Virtual Bucket Appeal - If everyone gives a little and shares a lot, with your help we can provide a better quality of life for people with NF, making their every day better.

Our NF community needs you now more than ever, every £1 counts. Thank you for your support.
