For Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) it is important to obtain information from; 1) recent trusted sources, 2) not just information based on personal experiences, or 3) fact bias websites selling or promoting products can easily result in confusion and choice that may have life threatening consequences.

  1. Trusted Sources/New Material: Thanks to science developments understanding more about NF2, technology for treatment refinement, and opportunities for another year to monitor long term results on treatments, help improve and change what doctors may say about different things that can help.

  2. Personal Experiences: One thing that has been proven about NF2 is variability of health issues past the hallmark development of Bilateral Vestibular Schwannoma (VS).
