The Tumour Foundation of BC is the new name for the BC Neurofibromatosis Foundation (BCNF). Established in 1984 by Paul Ralfs, the Tumour Foundation of BC is a charitable organization supporting individuals affected with neurofibromatosis (NF).
“Although the effects of neurofibromatosis vary greatly from person to person, most people with NF live fulfilling and productive lives. We know more now than in the past about how to diagnose, prevent and treat many serious complications of NF. Certainly, there is still a great need to learn more, but if NF research labs and organizations such as BCNF continue to work together, our understanding of this complex disorder and our ability to treat it effectively will be much better tomorrow than it is today.”
