Children’s Tumour Foundation
The Children’s Tumour Foundation (CTF) is the only dedicated support service for those impacted by Neurofibromatosis (NF) in Australia; a genetic condition that causes tumours to form on nerves in the body. NF is a life-long disorder with few treatment options and no cure. The CTF exists to provide a pathway from fear to hope by advocating for access to better services, investing in promising research, and empowering those impacted with knowledge, connections and support at every stage of their journey. Whiteley is a proud supporter of Children’s Tumour Foundation, and been a key sponsor of the Australian Neurofibromatosis Symposium.
