Neurofibromatosis or "NF", affects millions of people worldwide and at least 1000 individuals and families in Iowa. Few have heard of it, and currently, there is no cure and few treatments. But you can help change that.

Like the majority of events, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Shine A Light Walk Iowa has gone virtual this year. However, you can still support the Children's Tumor Foundation's premier fundraising opportunity.

The entire state of Iowa is invited for this virtual walk on Saturday, August 29th. Go to to register and donate to put an end to Neurofibromatosis.

Neurofibromatosis affects one in 3000 people by causing tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. Learn more here about how the Children's Tumor Foundation is trying to drive research and expand knowledge to find a cure and more treatments for this disease.
