Patient Conferences Keep Patients Updated on the Most Current Practices
CCAN was proud to help with sponsorship of two Conferences. Jan in San Francisco and the other in Lexington, KY.
We were able to produce six regional conferences, (NYC, Nashville, TN, Orlando, FL and Los Angeles, CA, Cruise) thanks to the generous sponsorship of Inter Science Institute. We hosted the first ever conference for Lungnoid only in Nashville and a conference on a cruise. Over 650 patients attended these events.
In June we participated in a fundraiser in Charlotte, NC. The ‘2nd Annual Smokin’ Butt Fest.’ What a fun event with great food and prizes.
CCAN was there to lend a hand at the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society's NANETS Regional Symposium in Nashville, TN and at NANETS' National Meeting in Charleston, SC.
Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day & NET Cancer Awareness Month
5th Annual 'Strides for Stripes Zebra Walk.'
On November 2nd over 500 people came to walk in support of NET cancer patients at our 5th Annual 'Strides for Stripes Zebra Walk.' It was an exciting day, with an antique fire truck and the WALK Radio Team on hand with a prize wheel. A special Thanks to the band Undercover who entertained us again this year. Each walker received a tee shirt, bottled water, snack bars, and hand warmers and a raffle ticket for a chance to win a 3 foot tall stuffed zebra. They were fed a delicious lunch of heros, chips and apples.
NYS Proclamation 2013
New York State has declared November 'Carcinoid/NET Cancer Awareness Month' each year since 2006.
It is challenging to find support for NET Cancer Awareness Initiatives and we want to thank the state of New York and the governors for their tremendous support through the years. Why not get on board and have your state, city or town declare a 'NET Cancer Awareness' time every November!
10th Annual Celebration of Life Gala
November 9, 2013 was another wonderful evening- our 10th Annual Celebration of Life Gala. With over 250 people in attendance it was a great success and a lot of fun. People had chances to win AWESOME prizes.

I would not be able to see the light at the end of all of the medical decisions we have to make if it were not for Maryann and her husband who put in countless hours for all of us.
