We are committed to meeting the needs of people impacted by neurofibromatosis by providing comfort, support, education, advocacy and funding of research for a treatment, prevention or cure. The Foundation is dependent on funds raised by special events, foundations, and individual donations to survive. If you would like to assist us in serving our mission, please visit the pages in our How to Help section.


Texas NF was founded in 1980 by an NF mom, Doris Kraft of Austin, and an NF doctor, Dr. Vincent Riccardi (pictured here) of Houston. The Texas NF Foundation is dedicated to providing support to those families impacted by NF and works hard to fund effective treatments for NF by promoting and funding research, and raising public awareness about NF. Click here for a Foundation fact sheet.
