Houston NF Walk
The Houston NF Walk is a fundraising event benefitting the Children's Tumor Foundation, a charity organization that raises money to help find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and can lead to blindness, cancer, excruciating and debilitating pain, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, and learning disabilities. NF affects 1 in every 3,000 people - more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington's disease combined.
In addition to benefitting those who live with NF, the research funded by the Houston NF Walk is shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefitting the broader community.
