After diagnosis, on the operating table, with a lung carcinoid tumor I was told it was not really cancer, it was out and go and enjoy my life. While in substantial post- operative pain for many months, I had to ask to see an oncologist and pour over the Internet to find out information and help. CCAN was a wonderful source of information and led to other ways to contact the carcinoid community, providing much needed advice ( it is cancer!) and how I should be followed from now on. Recently, I was lucky to be able to attend the world's first patient lung carcinoid conference at Vanderbilt University TN and hear talks from one of the very few Us experts and the world expert on this disease. it also made all the difference to be in a room of people who 'get it' , when faced with a rare disease. This event would not have been possible without the hard work, organization and support of the wonderful people at CCAN. They are doing a fantastic job, Thank You!
