I’m extremely pleased and honoured to have been selected as the first guest contributor to feature in the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation’s blog site!
I’ve been following these guys since I was diagnosed. They have been serving the Carcinoid/NET Community for over 44 Years and they are in my opinion the largest and most respected Carcinoid Cancer organisation on the planet.
The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation began as the ‘Carcinoid Tumor and Serotonin Research Foundation’ in 1968 when the NIH fund for rare cancers was terminated. The name was changed to the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation in 1995. It is a non-profit organization chartered by the State of New York for the purpose of encouraging and supporting research and education on carcinoid and related neuroendocrine cancers.
The blog is designed to explain why I’ve felt it necessary to learn a lot more about both my disease and my general health; and why I think others would benefit. The title is slightly ‘tongue in cheek’ but it touches on a lot of serious points for all Cancer patients. I hope you enjoy!
