The Healing NET Foundation was founded by individuals with a common desire to bring neuroendocrine cancer from the obscurity of the “cancer that Steve Jobs had” to a level of understanding that neuroendocrine tumors are very treatable forms of cancer; many patients can live long lives of high quality. We understand it first-hand, as patients or friends of patients. http://www.thehealingnet.org
It is a nonprofit organization chartered by the State of New York for the purpose of encouraging and supporting research and education on carcinoid and related neuroendocrine cancers.
Dr. Richard R.P. Warner, along with his patients and family members, started the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation in 1968 to perpetuate his research relating to serotonin and carcinoid syndrome.

Our Mission is to intensify awareness of Neuroendocrine Cancer including Carcinoid. NCAN provides access to information about NETs, and funding for NET cancer research. For the past 12 years NCAN has provided information and support to NET patients and caregivers through e-mail, our web site, and toll free phone number. Our phone line is open 7 days a week 9 am – 9 pm EST, 365 days a year! The phone line is answered by a patient or a caregiver at all times. This is very important to us . We want you to know the person on the other end of the phone understands first hand about the disease. Several thousand free information packets have been mailed worldwide. We provided many support groups worldwide with information, merchandise, awareness items and financial support.
