Welcome to the NF2 Crew! We are an online support group for those with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2).
NF1 is the more common type of Neurofibromatosis which affects 1 in 3,500 whereas NF2 strikes every 1 in 33,000 people. Since NF2 is the less common form, you may find it hard to find others who have NF2.
The NF2 Crew was formed to address this issue. Members correspond with and meet other other people with NF2 from around the globe. A most often heard phrase from new members is, “I didn’t think anyone else was like me, I fit in here!” We exchange everything from information on treatments and research to trivia and jokes. One of our goals is accessibility and we offer a variety of Internet-based communication mediums.
For more information on NF2, a few excellent sources are: NF2 – Information & Services, AdvoCure NF2, Inc., Children’s Tumor Foundation, and NF Network. We also have many NF2 related resources on our Links page.
