A word from Rosemary Anderson, President NF, Inc. Michigan

Dear NF friends,

For the past several years researchers have suspected that there is a higher risk for breast cancer in individuals with NF1.  This research has now come to Michigan.  Dr. Xia Wang at Henry Ford Hospital is working on a grant from the Department of Defence to study breast cancer in NF1.

If you or a family member with NF1 has had breast cancer, regardless of how long ago, please consider contacting Dr. Wang to help her gather data.  Simply email her at [email protected]  She’ll send you all the information you need to decide whether you wish to participate.

You may also contact Dr. Wang by phone:
