No surgery, no treatment can stop it.
The Giorgio Foundation is working with researchers across the country to advance research in this field
Now there is hope…
Funding Highly Focused Research
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.
Partnering with Proven Researchers
We partner with researchers that have a proven record of modeling NF1 and progressing existing research of the condition.
Driving Awareness and Empathy
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 at the age of five, 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
