Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) is a genetic disorder that strikes every 1 in 33,000 people. It can be inherited or spontaneous and does not discriminate based on race, sex or even environment. While the disorder is not completely rare, it is rare enough that the average person with NF2 may encounter few, if any, other people with NF2 in their lifetime. To date there is no cure.
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.
A few excellent sources for additional NF2 background are AdvoCure NF2, Inc., Children’s Tumor Foundation, NF2 – Information & Services, and NF Network. We also have many NF2 related resources on our Links page.
