My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, Fort Mill, SC, USA
My wife has Neuroendocrine Cancer and while searching for information on her cancer she became involved with Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network. She began to discuss lab tests, scans and other tests for patients which were not available in our area. She discussed different treatments and wondered if they could help her cope and feel better. Truthfully, I listened but privately didn't know what to expect.
In the fall of 2014, we attended a National Conference hosted by NCAN. At the conference, as we met other patients and caregivers, I watched my wife come back to life. I realized we both needed this outlet for education and support.
We have continued to be involved with NCAN and attend as many functions as possible. We participate in a monthly NCAN support meeting for our in state patients. Several caregivers attend the meetings and we are able to share within the group or privately. Everyone encourages the other members, celebrating the good times and supporting each othef during the bad days.
I look forwarc to the conferences and educational seminars where we attend the educational sessions, make new friends and reunite with old friends. NCAN is very beneficial to NET patients and plays a vital role in the life of the patient and their caregiver.
