Mrs Karen Ferguson
I am the Charity Manager of Funny Lumps and the mother of two grown up sons, the oldest of whom has Nf. I have worked for the last fifteen years in the Nf community. Initially with the Neurofibromatosis Association (now the Neuro Foundation) as Development Manager for Scotland and then set up the charity Confer which then evolved into Funny Lumps. My hopes for the future are for every child with Nf to reach their full potential both educationally and socially and to be able to access the health care necessary for their lives to be as pain free as possible.
Nf1 can cause benign or non cancerous tumours to grow on nerves.
