Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, North Bellmore, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The founders/leaders of this group never stop. They never stop getting educated, educating, conferencing, answering phonecalls from scared patients, planning informational conferences, informing doctors, working with drug companies, traveling to get and give information, and so much more. They are unsung heroes, respected and admired by so many.

Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, North Bellmore, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This group is one of a kind. The dedication of this couple to helping educate cancer patients about this cancer is unparalleled. This is the premier group to contact if a patient wants to know about carcinoid and neuroendocrine cancers. They keep up to date and have helped so many patients through their hotline, website, and conferences. Their fundraising efforts are many and have led to involvement by the foremost medical efforts in the field.

Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, North Bellmore, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an amazing grass-roots organization that educates the public and carcinoid cancer patients. It is run by a couple in Long Island who started with nothing. The wife is a carcinoid patient who answers her phone night and day, runs conferences (the last one was in NOLA and had more than 450 registrants), fund-raising walks and galas and has come up with a large amount of money for research and support.

Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, North Bellmore, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have seen this organization grow larger for the last 8 years. The education program is phenomenal, involving the key professionals in the area of carcinoid cancer and neuroendocrine tumors appearing at every function. This group represents international and national patients. The fundraisers are conducted in a professional manner and more and more people have been educated and helped by the money raised by this vibrant, undying, and unrelenting organization run by a woman with carcinoid cancer and her husband and other family members. The founder has appeared on radio programs, television programs, and has been a keynote speaker at many of the professional conferences. She is articulate, caring, and always available to those who have a need or desire to know about these diseases which have been virtually ignored, until recently, thanks to her work and the works of others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have attended events, read the brochures, seen patients who have been helped by this organization, met doctors foremost in the field, attended an annual gala, listened to Ms. Wahmann's radio appearances, explored the web site.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes. This is a very professional, efficiently run outreach and education program.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have attended the annual Gala and watched this group's innovative techniques to raise money for education, awareness, and research.
