Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, Fort Mill, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is an honor to be able to work with and support Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network (NCAN) founder and Executive Director Maryann and Bob Wahmann in their outreach efforts to the NET cancer community. Since Maryann’s diagnosis in 2001, the Wahmanns have devoted their lives to supporting thousands of patients in this rare disease community, annually hosting four regional patient education conferences and holding a national conference biennially. They are constantly striving to expand the information channels they use to reach patients throughout the country—making printed materials available to the 15-plus local patient support groups across the country, holding regular leadership training programs for local leaders, hosting an active online presence through their website and blog – with several thousand visitors monthly – and being available 9 AM to 9 PM 7 days a week for calls which come in from patients around the world. Our experience in working with NCAN can be summarized in a quote by famed anthropologist and humanist Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
