Children’s Tumor Foundation Hosts National Gala and Presents Award to UF Researcher

The neurofibromatosis (NF) patient community, joined by leading philanthropists, medical professionals, civic leaders, and businesses, will gather for the annual Children’s Tumor Foundation National Gala. Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and affects 1 in 3,000 births of all populations. There is currently no cure.

An evening of inspiration and celebration, the Foundation will present this year’s Humanitarian Medical Award to Peggy Wallace, PhD, University of Florida College of Medicine professor. Dr. Wallace has made numerous remarkable contributions to the field of NF research; most notably, she was on the team that discovered the NF gene in 1991.
