NF Center Patient Receives NF Hope Award


NF Center patient, Elana Loftspring, received the 2016 NF Hope Award in Las Vegas, NV.

Elana Loftspring was awarded the NF Hope Award at the recent NF Hope Concert in Las Vegas on October 23rd. This prestigious award is given to someone in the NF community “who has risen above their NF diagnosis to make a difference for others living with NF.”
The NF Network, in conjunction with Jeff Leibow, director/producer of the NF Hope concert, presented Elana with this distinction. Dr. David Gutmann, Washington University NF Center Director, taped congratulatory comments and greetings, which were aired at the concert.
From all of us at the Washington University NF Center, we extend our congratulations to Elana on receiving this important award.
