The Healing NET Tapestry Project showcases the many who play a part in improving care for NET patients. Weaving together the voices and perspectives of the NET community—physicians, nurses, patients, caregivers, scientists, industry, and others—makes us stronger. The resulting tapestry creates the best possible care for NET patients.

I’m inspired by the patients I see and treat. These people 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
