Thanks for joining us!
We are working toward supporting our neuroendocrine cancer (NETs) survivors and caretakers. We also are creating awareness, encouraging development of treatments and even cures!
Why the zebra stripes? In medical schools, students learning to diagnose are sometimes told “When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses, not zebras.” This encourages the new doctor to look for the obvious, common causes, not the exotic ones.
The problem is that neuroendocrine tumor (NETs) has been so unusual that the average time to diagnosis has been six years! Thus, we call ourselves zebras.
Let’s raise awareness! I’d rather not be a zebra anymore.
