Every Gift Was Matched

The Spark Hope campaign was fueled by a generous match by the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation. Every gift was doubled.


What Our Donors Are Saying

“I give to NETRF because my wife was diagnosed 20 years ago. And I want to accomplish what any husband would is to have an effective treatment and a cure for my wife’s disease. And we have seen remarkable progress made. But we will only get to a cure if we all work together and do whatever it takes.”

“I financially support NETRF because as an orphan disease there is not enough government funding and visibility from major foundations. So it is going to take a lot of other  donors to make research move forward.”
