You can play a part in improving care for NET patients by sharing your story with the Healing NET Tapestry Project on or before World NET Cancer Day, November 10, 2019. If you are a physician, nurse, patient, caregiver, scientist, industry representative, or other person supporting better care, become a part of the Tapestry. Weaving together the voices and perspectives of the NET community makes us stronger.

We need your story! We are collecting written stories and photos or your own homegrown videos to share on social media to bring awareness to NET cancer.

Videos do not need to be professionally done—create them with your smart phone or webcam using the following as prompts:

  • Name (first and/or last) and if Patient, Caregiver, Friend, Physician, Nurse or Allied Health, Industry or Supporter

  • What is the biggest challenge to achieving “best possible care”?

  • What gives you inspiration?

  • What have you learned that needs to be shared?

If you have any questions or difficulty submitting the Tapestry word form or uploading a photo or video, please contact info@thehealingnet.org!

Thanks to Kathleen Haskett of Nashville for quilting this piece in honor of the NET community. The patient or “Zebra” receives the best quality of life when all stakeholders embrace a common thread of working together to achieve top care.

We need your donation! Your support will not only raise awareness, it will also kickstart valuable new learning opportunities for physicians and nurses, and a new Neuroendocrine Primer for Patients, But we can't do it without you!

Thoughts collected from the NET community:

I’m inspired by the patients I see and treat. These people are...you might term them professional survivors.
— George Fisher, MD and NET Oncologist
Many of the institutions did not have a NET expert, and the information available at the institution was very limited and often wrong.
— Jean Borden, NET patient and retired RN
What inspires me is the courage of other patients and the dedication of NET specialists.
— Ken Ertel, Patient and Support Group Leader
