Why Contribute to the NF Hope Concert?


In 2019, more than 1,200 new NF families contacted NF Network

to better understand what an NF diagnosis means.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we need your help more than ever
to be sure we can continue to help when the next NF family calls.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

Neurofibromatosis Network:
The Reason We Do What We Do

ABOUT THE NF HOPE CONCERT

The NF Hope Concerts are focused on positively impacting the NF community and making a difference in the world around us. With this focus, we recognize our prudent responsibility to help health officials minimize the spread of COVID-19. 

 

So, it is with this responsibility and a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Chicago's 3rd Annual NF Hope Concert, originally scheduled for March 29, 2020 and NYC's 4th Annual NF Hope Concert, scheduled for May 4, 2020.

 

The NF Hope Concerts were created to support the NF community and fund NF Network's programs to empower NF families and improve their lives. Many individuals living with NF are being treated with chemotherapy and other similar anti-tutorial regiments, and as a result may be immune suppressed. Because we are dedicated to their safety, we cannot take a chance of exposing NF families to COVID-19 and the dangers it could pose to them and other family members. We also have to consider the well-being of our caring patrons and the community at large.

 

Our challenge now, beyond helping our families navigate this unprecedented pandemic, is to recover from the loss of this invaluable fundraising. In total, the cancellation of Chicago's 3rd Annual NF Hope Concert and NYC's 4th Annual NF Hope Concert represents nearly $75,000 in lost income. For a grass roots organization, this is devastating. 

 

So, we are asking for your help.

 

We invite you to join us for the inaugural NF Hope Concert Live Stream on Monday, May 4 @ 7:00 PM EDT for a night of entertainment in support of NF Network and the thousands of NF families that depend on them every day!

 

The event will include appearances by Debbie Gibson, Dave Koz, Jasmine Trias, James Iglehart, Jessy Schram, Erich Bergen, Travis Cloer, Deven May, Kristen Hertzenberg, Benjamin Hale, NF Hope Concert co-founder Jeff Leibow and more. We will also be speaking with NF Network Executive Director Kim Bischoff, Advocate of Hope Award recipient Dr. David Gutmann, Paul Bodner Memorial Award recipient Matt Hay and members of the NF community.

 

You can join us on Facebook Live (link will be available on our social media channels) or YouTube Live (see link below).

 

Kindest regards,

Jeff Leibow
