Welcome to Caitlin's Promise!

Christine Christensen

Christine Christensen

Thank you for looking at our page. Caitlin was just shy of 20 when we received the new that one of her Plexiform (Neurofibromatosis tumors) has turned malignant and within 3 month she died having celebrated her last birthday in pain, afraid but with a support system around her like no other. I PROMISED CAITLIN that she would never be forgetten. She didn't talk a lot about death and dying but she made it clear her fear was that "who would take care of her family" and "nobody will remember me", especailly her almost 2 year old brother who she loved as if he were her own! Caitlin lost her battle with NF and Cancer on November 22nd 2013 and we will forever have a hole in our hearts for where she would be.

So I ask for you to help me keep Caitlin's Promise! Please help me remember how amazing she was and all the amazing things she wanted to do but couldn't. Let's help others as she would have wanted. For the rest of the world life went on, for us we live in the broken hearted missing my child/sister/niece/friend forever!


Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to form on the nerves anywhere in the body at any time, plus a huge array of other complications! It’s a progressive disorder that affects all races and both sexes equally. Currently there is no cure or effective treatment.

We’re very excited about the opportunity to raise funds because we want to support a foundation that is close to the heart. We have formed a team for a the Great Steps 4NF Naperville Walk on June 02, 2018 to raise awareness and funds to improve care.

How can you help?

1. Join our team for the walk and help to raise funds. Contact us if you are interested in this opportunity or click the Join Team button on the right side of our team page.

2. Donate on our page

3. Send a check to NF Midwest), 473 Dunham Rd., Suite 3, St. Charles, IL 60174 and in the memo add “Caitlin's Promise/Christine".

Many thanks in advance for your generosity! Please remember that no gift is too small. Every contribution gets us a little closer to our goal – FINDING A CURE! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Together we can make a difference and improve the lives of children and adults with this devastating disorder!

Sincerely,

Christine
