JOIN THE NF NORTH CENTRAL COMMUNITY
We are a community comprised of motivated, intelligent, compassionate, people from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming who are impacted by NF. We are connected with individuals and families all over our country. The NF Network is a true family and the NF North Central Community is a part of this larger family.
We welcome wide-eyed newcomers with open arms and, together, work to find treatments and a cure for neurofibromatosis by promoting scientific research, improving clinical care, and providing outreach through education and awareness, all while offering hope and support to those affected by NF. It is because of this fundamental dedication to the human element of NF, that people are so drawn to the NF Network and the individualized support and guidance it provides them.
Here are a few elements of the NF Network Community we recommend you explore
