Mission:
CCF's mission is to educate patients, healthcare professionals and the public regarding carcinoid and related neuroendocrine tumors, to bring about greater awareness of these rare cancers, to support NET cancer patients and their families, and to serve as patient advocates.

There are at least 110,000 people living with carcinoid/NETs in the United States today, with approximately 11,000 new cases diagnosed per year.
The philosophy of CCF is to disseminate accurate, up-to-date information about diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance options to maximize survival and quality of life for those individuals who suffer from these rarecancers. We strive, as do the multitude of carcinoid/NETs national and international experts, to find a cure. CCF works closely with both U.S. and international medical experts, patient advocate organizations, and support groups. Since 2010, the Foundation has been a member of the Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day Alliance, an international organization dedicated to bringing about greater awareness of NET cancers.

The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, the first and oldest foundation of its kind in the United States, has earned worldwide recognition as a resource for patients, medical professionals, and researchers. Over 1,125,000 people from more than 100 countries worldwide have visited CCF’s website, considered to be one of the most authoritative sources for neuroendocrine tumor (NET) information.
