Representatives Who Signed On

Thank you to everyone who worked so quickly and diligently at getting members of the House of Representatives to sign onto  “dear colleague” letters supporting $15 million for the Army’s NF Research Program and for NF specific report language to be included in the Fiscal Year 2015 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations bill.  With your help, we were able to get a record 89 representatives sign on to the DOD letter supporting the Army’s NF Research Program.

We CAN keep this going and give hope of a brighter future to people with NF.  Be sure to thank those who signed and don’t give up on those who haven’t.  Not signing does not mean that they don’t support neurofibromatosis research.  See copies of the DOD letter and LHHS letter.
