Meet Madeline. Madeline was a recipient of our scholarship grant to the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s NF Summit. As part of our scholarship, we awarded attendees who could otherwise not afford it assistance with travel, accommodations, and/or tickets.

Madeline could not afford the airfare to get her to the Summit – all of her savings are dedicated to her Master’s program. She hopes to become a Child Life Specialist.

“This was my first time attending the NF Summit. Thanks to the B the Difference Foundation I was able to participate in person in Chicago, including registration costs, flights, and hotel accommodations. My experience at Summit was absolutely positive. I got to meet so many new friends with NF and learn from some of the kindest, most helpful doctors and researchers I have ever met. My favorite part of the Summit was the Poster Presentations and Awards Ceremony. I got to share my NF story with others and listen to and celebrate the amazing accomplishments of leaders in the NF Community. I would not hesitate to attend the CTF NF Summit again next year.”
