These people are directly or indirectly affected by NF2 and support the team, but they are not part of the Board of Trustees and therefore do not have voting rights.

Eight good reasons to donate:

  1. Genetic changes that cause tumours in NF2 are found in many human tumours. Advances in the field of NF2 also help other tumour patients (patients with nerve tumours, brain tumours or cancer patients).
  2. With your donation you are helping a minority (NF2-affected) who already belong to a minority (rare diseases).
  3. Your donation won’t get lost in the crowd.
  4. The act of donating makes you feel good.
  5. The certainty that your donation is effective.
  6. You save taxes and even help tumour patients.
  7. You are able to see what happens with your donation on our website
  8. You are in touch with our community (we are within reach)
