NF2: While we Wait
Help Reach $20,000 by January 1, 2018
Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) results in slow growth of tumors and other health problems that starts at birth, even if not seen until teen years or much later in life. There is no cure for the genetic condition NF2, and unfortunately, all tumor-drug treatments in clinical trials have a maximum potential for tumor size reduction less than 20%. The simple truth is until gene therapy immunotherapy, and stem cell research is ready money donated to cures is simply donations to delays of tumors.
'NF2 Information and Services Inc.' is looking for donations to help share information on options that can help while we wait for research in the new fields to develop. No cure does not mean people with NF2 have no options now.
'NF2 Information and Services Inc.' is looking to help doctors and families fighting NF2 to find information on pros and cons of options to improve Quality of Life while we wait for a cure.
Donations needed for growth to help to fund:
• 1 year GoToMeeting Hosting for interviews with NF2 Medical Specialists about treatment options - live and to watch after on YouTube
• Captioning for live Interviews online 2 sessions (CART operators cost is $500 per event)
• graphics tools for better descriptive images
• reach more people with NF2 and doctors
• website costs
• basic cost-of-operations

About NF2 Information and Services Inc.
NF2 Information and Services, Inc. 501 public nonprofit charity, runs https://www.nf2is.org/about_us.php.
NF2 IS, is run by people with NF2 and families of people with NF2, who are looking to help others like themselves live with the best Quality of Life.
Services are not provided by the charity NF2 IS, services are simply a share of information of organizations to contact for help with different issues. The NF2 IS Board Members and Founder have a strict policy to guarantee no bias of information for services can occur by agreeing to not accepting sponsorship from any medical source. NF2 IS does not have goals to help individuals with personal medical issues, only clarity of facts to stop the serious issue of misinformation because few doctors know what NF2 is, and have never even met an individual with NF2.
Every dollar is important and in things I have done to help others with very little funding should be proof enough of what I could do with every $1 donated. Please help by donating to NF2 Information and Services.
Fundraiser Goal: $100,000
The listed goal of $20,000 is considerably less than what the charity needs to meet its goals properly but is the total of minimum cost-of-operations to help the organization get a proper financial start to file for grants to help in bigger ways in 2018. Some of these costs include; website fees, webinar (online meeting) fees, captioning fees, and advertisement fees to connect with more doctors about Neurofibromatosis Type 2. NF2 Information and Services is only funded by fundraiser money at this time.
Reaching the goal will also allow for online live discussions with NF2 specialists about trials, treatment and physical therapy with captioning. (11/30/17) - CEO and Founder - Lori Davila [email protected]
