Thank you Ronny 👍“

A big “thank you” for sharing this information, and please keep it coming!“
- Cathy commented: “…..This Facebook page has and continues to be a great network resource for sharing experiences and having realistic expectations of procedures and treatments. Ronny’s website is, with the plain, easy to read and understand science of almost every aspect of this disease, vital to learning about my husband’s sbNET. I have learned about treatment options, complications, nutrition, expectations and procedures. I have been able to support my husband so much better BECAUSE of this FB group and Ronny’s website“.
