Fundraiser Details

The focus of NF Family Foundation is to reach out to individuals and families with neurofibromatosis who struggle financially as well as personally due to medical issues.  Raising a family and thriving in our society is difficult enough without the added pressures of a disability.  We realize first hand what kind of stress that brings into a family.  Our goal is to reach out our hand to help those struggling families by...



1) Making home and hospital visits to bring care packages and a little company.

 2) Helping make out of area visits as easy as    
     possible by working with other 
clinics and
     agencies to find affordable accommodations for
     your stay.
                                                        

 3) Providing some financial help with  
     accommodations for out of area visits.*
                                                        

 4) Helping with a portion of transportation costs to
     individuals for out of area 
visits.*
                                                        

 5) Providing some assistance for families with a
     loved one out of town or in 
hospitals by arranging
     meal deliveries or grocery deliveries.*
                                                        

 6) Helping with co-pays or costs of medically
     deemed equipment or tests not 
covered by
     Insurance.

 7) Providing some assistance to families seeking
     alternative therapies such as 
horseback riding,
     swimming and adaptive sports not covered by
     Insurance.*

 8) Continuing to spread awareness throughout the
     medical and social community 
by organizing large
     events to bring attention to the cause.


 9) Supporting our families by helping them form
     strong bonds with others in the 
community.

* Available on an "as needed" basis to families who qualify.  Please see the request for assistance page for further information.

In order to do more large fundraising events we need funds for expenses.  We have a lot in store for 2013!

My son's struggles will not be in vain...thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In October of 2013 we finally received all the IRS paperwork to make our non-profit a legitimate foundation.  We immediately began by setting up a minecraft pixelmon server which donates 100% of its funds to the NF Family Foundation.  In its 4 months the server has brought in over $15,000 to cover our initial certification paperwork and start reaching families.  We are able to use some of these funds to start sending our some personal care package to some amazing kiddos over the holidays and even made a few home visits to drop of gifts, medical equipment and personal items.  We already have 10 assistance requests and are now on our way to helping these struggling families with travel and medical expenses.  2014 is going to be an amazing year.  Make a choice to be a part of this amazing adventure and help us make these lives a bit brighter.  You can check out what we have been up to be visitng www.NFfamilyFoundation.org
