CARCINOID CANCER AWARENESS NETWORK INC
October 16, 2013

Those of us with Carcinoid Cancer know how hard it is to get correct info and to be diagnosed. Even after we are diagnosed, most doctors do not know how to treat us. With all of this going against us, CCAN is there to get us correct info and to let us know which doctors know how to treat this rate disease. They are just available to talk if that is what we need.

This non profit organization is the best!!

CARCINOID CANCER FOUNDATION
August 13, 2012

In 2010 I had a gynecological surgery. When the pathology came back, I found out I had carcinoid cancer! No one could tell me much about it, other than it's the slowest growing cancer, so let's just wait and see. Doctors learn about it in med school and will probably never see a case. My oncologist monitored me for 2 years when another tumor was found. I went to the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, received vital info as well as the names of the stellar physicians who know everything about this disease. I learned you shouldnot wait and see. It spreads to the liver and other places. My tumor was recently removed as was the primary tumor and I owe it to CCF.
