The Tumour Foundation of BC is excited to celebrate this holiday with you. This is a wonderful time of the year and it is an opportunity to show those closest to us how much we care about them, and at the same time make a difference in the world.
Gifts to End NF puts into action our mission of empowering individuals battling neurofibromatosis. Each symbolic gift will make a difference to your honouree, as well as to the children and families on a journey with NF.
This is our first year with a gift guide. We hope you will be inspired to give these gifts to your loved ones and help us create a world without NF.
From all of us on the board of directors at the Tumour Foundation of BC, I wish you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season.
Gifts to #EndNF?
Gifts to #EndNF are meaningful gifts that you can give to family, friends and co-workers while meeting the unique needs of children and adults affected with neurofibromatosis (NF). It’s an opportunity for you to help children and families supported by the Tumour Foundation of BC, and honour friends and family at the same time.
When you shop from the Gifts to #EndNF catalogue on behalf of your family and friends, you help individuals on the NF journey. Shop Gifts to #EndNF on our website at tumourfoundation.ca/gifts.
NF is a genetic disorder, which causes tumours to grow on nerves throughout the body. These tumours are often inoperable and can cause complications such as disfigurement, bone deformities, vision impairment, learning disabilities, and cancer.
You can mark the holiday season by giving a gift that empowers those living with neurofibromatosis through education, support and research opportunities.
Living with NF is not an easy journey.
There are no NF clinics or NF experts in BC that coordinate patient care. Families battling NF must become their own health experts.
Having a foundation that provides emotional support and accessible up-to-date information is vital for this forgotten community. There is still no cure, but with our new research programs, we are working to change that.
