Welcome!

Big Apple NETs was created in 2013 as a group for those in the greater New York City area whose lives are affected by carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine cancers (generally referred to as neuroendocrine tumors or “NETs”.)   Our primary purpose is to provide each other – NETs patients, caregivers, family and friends – with support and information.  We hold monthly support group meetings where we share experiences, questions, concerns and information.

We have exciting news about a new location for our support group meetings beginning in September 2018. Click here for the flyer.  

SPECIAL NOTE: The 10/18 support group meeting will be in the 2nd floor conference room at 10 E 102nd street. There are two ways to get there; through the third floor of Ruttenberg Treatment Center [take a left out of the elevators, and go all the way down the hallway and through the waiting room to the elevators next to a check-in desk and going down to the second floor] or by taking the elevator to the second floor from the lobby of 10 E 102nd street. There will be signs to the conference room from the elevator.

Be sure to reserve your spot for the upcoming New York City NET Patient and Caregiver Education Conference, co-sponsored by the NET Research Foundation and The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at the Westin Times Square Hotel. Click here for more information, the agenda, and to register.

We have also presented a series of Luncheons With The Experts where patients and caregivers can ask questions of a panel of highly experienced NETs medical professionals in an informal setting.

In addition, we support the goals of the worldwide NETs community to bring much needed attention to these uncommon cancers, and to educate and inform health care providers.

If you live in the greater New York City area and are a NETs patient, caregiver or friend, please Contact Us and join us at our next meeting!
