CTF's primary goal is raise awareness and funding for research to end Neurofibromatosis to which there is currently no cure.
What is Neurofibromatosis? NF is a rare genetic disease that affects one in every 3000 persons world wide! This rare disease causes TUMORS to form on nerves throughout the whole body. These TUMORS can lead to blindness, deafness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, learning disabilities, disabling pain and CANCER. Research is the only way we're going to find a cure.
Children's Tumor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, with an IRS ruling year of 1984
We wanted to let you all know that the process for getting a charity added to the Twitch Charity Tool has changed, because of this, we will be closing out these requests. At this time, the charity tool is fully integrated with the PayPal Giving Fund; so if your charity is registered there, you can already find it to start a fundraising campaign. In the case you find your charity appears to be missing from the tool, please reach out to the organization regarding registering with the PayPal Giving Fund.
You can learn more about how to sign up your charity here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-charities. For more information on Twitch’s Charity Tool, please feel free to access our FAQ Help Article: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-faqs.
While we normally respond to each idea on UserVoice individually, as a result of the volume of requests and the scope of this change, we will be mass responding to let the community know. Apologies if you have shown support for multiple charities and are receiving more than one email update for this adjustment.
Thank you all for giving us your feedback and for sharing your passion for your charities with Twitch!

"Neuro-what" you say? NEURO- FIBRO- MAH- TOSIS or "NF" for short.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) research isn't easy or free; but through donations, we're learning more each and every day. Recent research breakthroughs have opened up a new drug to help reduce the size and intrusiveness of these tumors! Because of donations by people like you, there's promising assistance on the horizon.
Do a google search for "neurofibromatosis" and click the images tab. This is only half of what NF does. For some, these tumors are INSIDE the body, not visible, but in very detrimental areas like the brain & spine.
