£420raised of £300 target by 23 supporters

    Weʼve raised £420 to help fund the research of Neurofibromatosis type 1, which is a genetic condition that causes tumours along the nerves.

    Funded on Thursday, 10th January 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I have entered to do a 10k run in Pilling on the 29th September and I am looking for sponsors to raise money for research into NF1. This condition has affected a friends daughter whose brother plays football with my boy.

    NF1 (Neurofibromatosis Type 1) is a complicated condition that can affect people in many different ways with varying degrees of severity and no predictability. From tumours in various places which are often impossible to remove surgically without causing significant damage, to vision problems, low muscle tone, hypermobility, to learning difficulties, the list could go on. The condition receives very minimal funding in the UK, despite the fact it affects 1 in every 3,000 people. The NF1 Army campaign was set up to raise £100,000 which will go directly to the NF1 team at Manchester Childrens Hospital to fund much needed research that will hopefully one day help to treat this condition.

    Any support will be greatly appreciated, thank you x
