U.S. Awareness of NF1
From TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper
We directly fund researchers specifically focused on NF1. Because there is no gatekeeper organization or “middle man,” we have the ability and flexibility to apply funds where they can do the most good.
We partner with researchers that have a proven record of modeling NF1 and progressing existing research of the condition.
We seek to bring NF1 into the light and help others understand NF1. We believe awareness is essential to empathy.
"Since Giorgio’s NF1 diagnosis five years ago, each doctor’s appointment resulted in more questions than answers, and a real sense of helplessness. Founding The Giorgio Foundation has given us hope that through targeted research we will allow our child and many others a life free of disfigurement.”Erin Borzellino, Co-founder, The Giorgio Foundation
