In April, Collingwood is helping Flicker of Hope to shine a light on Neurofibromatosis (NF).

Flicker of Hope are running a free family friendly event featuring 16 AFL greats! Who will goals to raise much-needed funds to help all sufferers of NF to have the right to dream.

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder that most people have never heard of. There are three types of NF: NF1, NF2 and Schwannomatosis. Neurofibromatosis causes tumours to grow on nerve endings throughout the body. It can affect major organs and lead to a variety of serious and debilitating health issues including cafe au lait spots, blindness, bone abnormalities, disfigurement, chronic pain, amputation, cancer, epilepsy, learning difficulties and autism.

Knowledge of NF is incredibly limited – research is needed to learn more about the condition and explore effective treatment options.

Come along to the Port Melbourne Football Club on Thursday 15 April at 4pm and enjoy the fun as big name legends kick butt for Neurofibromatosis Research.

Hosted by Darren James from 3AW there’s sure to be plenty of laughs, as well as photo and autograph opportunities.

In action will be Peter Daicos, Tony Liberatore, Ben Johnson, Stephen Milne, Damian Monkhorst, Dermott Brereton, Anthony Stevens, Glenn Archer, Robert DiDierdomenico, Gary Ayres, Jim Buckley, David Rhys Jones, Simon Madden, Dane Swan, Brendan Fevola and Billy Brownless.
Who will hit the target first?!!

Everyone welcome – make sure you wear your team colours and cheer loudly for your favourite player.
