Video from Children’s Tumor Foundation 2017 New York Gala

Thanks to our patrons and supporters, Cabaret for Life is proud to be able to sponsor a child to attend NF Camp in 2018.  NF Camp is the annual summer camp of the Children’s Tumor Foundation, dedicated to teens and young adults living with neurofibromatosis (NF).  The Children’s Tumor Foundation has hosted this week-long experience for over 20 years.  NF Camp is not just about the fun-filled activities, it is a chance to make lasting friendships with other people who understand what it’s like to be a young person with NF.  Our donation will cover all expenses for one camper, including travel, food and activities.

Two campers, Frankie and Olyviah Moriguchi, were honored as 2018 NF Ambassadors and gave a wonderful speech at the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s New York Gala last month. We thought our donors would like to know how much their support means to groups like the Children’s Tumor Foundation, and what a difference you make in the lives of people struggling with life-threatening illnesses.
