Raise money for Tumour Foundation of BC
The Tumour Foundation of BC improves the lives of individuals affected by neurofibromatosis (NF) through research, support and education.
NF is a genetic condition that causes tumours to grow on the nerves throughout the body. These tumours are often inoperable and can cause complications such as disfigurement, bone deformities, vision impairment, learning disabilities, and cancer.
NF affects more than 2.5 million people worldwide, making it more common that Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and Huntington’s disease combined.
There is no cure for NF but there is hope.
This year our goal at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge is to raise vital revenue to support our initiative of establishing BC's first medical clinic for patients with neurofibromatosis.
With no medical experts or specialized clinic in the province where families can go to receive care, parents are forced to become the experts in managing their own child's care.
Can you imagine your doctor looking to you for answers and direction on how to treat your illness?
That’s what families experience every day after receiving an NF diagnosis. Our goal is open the virtual NF clinic this July but we require additional funding.
With your donation you will be making a significant impact to improve the lives and health and well-being for all British Columbians affected by NF. Please consider giving today.
