Thank you to all who participated!
Enjoy the recap below of beNeFit VIII!
At our first-ever virtual beNeFit VIII gala this year, you and hundreds of others demonstrated your amazing support that enabled us to raise $7 million to fight NF! The funds will continue to support NF Forward and the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF.org ) to fund critical research to advance a cure for this devastating disorder. Because of you, we are one step closer to living in a world without NF.
This year's 'Strength and Honor Award' was presented to Maddox Gibson.
Maddox is a young man with NF who, despite the magnitude of his challenges, is a gleaming example of the countless ways those living with NF can thrive in life. Maddox inspired us that night, including his touching words of thanks to us all.
"Thank you to the NF Forward community for all you do to fight for NF warriors all over the country. People like you make a huge difference in my life. I’m thankful that technology allowed us to come together and reach our goal of finding a cure for NF. Let’s continue this fight together."
HERE is the video of Maddox’s powerful story that moved us deeply.
Once again, much gratitude for your generous support. We are consistently humbled by the outpouring and results. Fighting NF sometimes feels like trying to boil the ocean. But with you standing alongside us and contributing toward a cure, that ocean seems a little smaller.
