NF Forward – Accelerating a Cure for NF

What is NF?

Neurofibromatosis, also known as NF, is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves anywhere in the body.

Who We Are

Dan and Jennifer Gilbert have been passionate advocates in the fight to end NF since their oldest son, Nicolas, was born with NF1.

What We Do

NF Forward funds NF research with audacious, high-reaching goals that will bring us closer to a cure for NF.

Dan, Jennifer & Nick Gilbert, beNeFit VI, 2018


NF Forward’s signature event is beNeFit, a major gala held at TCF Center in downtown Detroit every November. Since 2013, beNeFit has raised over $30 million for NF research and attracts more than 1,700 supporters annually to join the fight to end NF.

This year’s invitation!
