2016 LungNET Conference, Denver CO, June 2011

Thanks to all who attended and supported the 2016 LungNET conference in Denver, CO presented by NCAN, and co-sponsored by Healing NET Foundation, Novartis, and Ipsen. We are also grateful to Dr. Kjell Oberg, Dr. Eric Liu, Dr. Robert Ramirez, Dr. Garrett Gannuch, Dr. Maggie Ryan, Dr. Richard Parker, Dr. Charlie Nutting, and Dr. Majd Kobitary, who presented topics ranging from the basics of LungNET to meds, therapies, surgery and non-surgery management, to clinical trials. 

Thanks to special supporters of the Healing NET Foundation, we were also honored to underwrite Dr. Kjell Oberg’s consultation with patients at the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers, in cooperation with Dr. Liu and Dr. Cohn. We’ve already heard feedback from many patients who were thrilled to be able to ask questions, and absorb expert opinion from a world leader of NET care and research.

NET Cancer Awareness Day to Giving Tuesday
to Dec 1

NET Cancer Awareness Day to Giving Tuesday

THANK a "doc" who has made a huge difference in understanding and healing NET for you, a family member, or a friend.  The Healing NET Foundation wants to tell the world what that person has meant to the NET patient (ZEBRA) community!   Perhaps we will inspire more physicians to become educated about neuroendocrine cancer.

Beginning on NET Cancer Awareness Day, November 10, through Giving Tuesday, December 2, we will be posting the names of all "docs" recognized by you.  For each mention a doc receives, he or she will get a special Healing NET Zebra heart.  

Your doc or your loved one's doc may not be a specialist, but that's ok.  We still want to hear why they are special.  

Send us their name, location, and one sentence that sums up how or why they have made a difference in healing NET.  Email info@thehealingnet.org and be sure to put THANK MY DOC in the subject line.  Don't forget to tell us who you are too!   

If you would like to make a Donation to the Healing NET Foundation as we seek to educate more physicians, and fund programs for better treatment and care of patients, you can choose In Honor Of your special "doc" and the Healing NET Foundation will send a special THANK YOU letter to your physician letting them know how their work has made a difference in your life, as well as for future lives.
