Dear NF Tennessee Community,
We are pleased to announce that NF Tennessee was awarded a local grant from the USA Today Network A Community Thrives Program! This grant, in addition to our successful A Community Thrives/Mighty Causes fundraising event in the fall of 2020 and to several very generous individual donations, will allow us to offer the following programs in the coming year:
~ Our Second Laptop Giveaway Program. The timeline for application will be from March 10th, 2021 until May 10th, 2021. Winners will be determined on May 17th, 2021, which is World NF Awareness Day. If you are interested in applying to receive a free laptop from NF Tennessee, please fill out the application below. Feel free to send your completed application, along with videos or other documentation if you choose, to NF Tennessee, 4922 Roselawn Circle, Nashville, TN 37215, or to my email, Emwright3000@gmail.com. We are looking forward to reading this year’s applications, and to choosing up to five winners of new laptops.
~ NF Summer Camp experiences. Last year, these camps were canceled due to the pandemic, and it is our hope that they will resume this summer. It is our goal to fund two individuals attending NF Summer Camps in the summer of 2021. More details to follow.
~ The Many Faces of NF Portrait Gallery. The artist, Rachel Mindrup, has been hard at work completing portraits for Tennesseans with NF. Some of her artwork can be found on our website, nftennessee.org. We plan also to present some of the portraits in a live gallery exhibition in the coming year.
~ And other new features coming to the NF Tennessee website will include a Guide for Newly Diagnosed Patients and Families and an NF Art Page.
As always, we thank you for your support of NF Tennessee, and welcome any suggestions or comments from you. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
Vice President and Treasurer, NF Tennessee
