NF Ontario continues to strive to bring awareness to Neurofibromatosis! This Year we attended the Taste of Lawrence to share information about NF via our new brochure and were assisted by a NF Ninja!
July 24th Neurofibromatosis Ontario was at beautiful Coronation Park in Toronto for our 2nd Annual Picnic!
It was a wonderful opportunity for families,challenged by NF to socialize, as well as spread NF Awareness.
We also enjoyed fabulous music performed by a talented group THE STOTTS who attracted attention with their upbeat alternative music and our NF Ninja entertained the little ones. Great Location, Great Food, Great Music and Great People!

What is Neurofibromatosis?
NF encompasses a set of distinct genetic disorders (NF1, NF2, Schwannomatosis) that cause tumours to grow along nerves and can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones and skin. NF causes tumours to grow anywhere on or in the body and can cause additional complications such as disfigurments, bone deformities and learning disabilities.
