    In 2014, the founder of the NF Hope® Concerts instituted an annual award to honor
    a recipient who has made a significant difference in the lives of those
    living with Neurofibromatosis. The award is called the ADVOCATE OF HOPE AWARD.


    We are honored to announce the recipient of the
    ADVOCATE OF HOPE AWARD

    for Chicago’s Inaugural NF Hope® Concert

    Dr. Tonsgard is an expert in neurofibromatosis (NF), epilepsy and seizures, and neurocutaneous disorders, including tuberous sclerosis. He provides comprehensive care for both children and adults with neurofibromatosis. His work has made an unmistakably positive impact on the NF community, and we are very excited to honor his with this award.
