Big Apple NETS was organized in 2013 by New York City area residents whose lives were affected by carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine cancers (generally referred to as neuroendocrine tumors, or “NETS”). The group’s primary purpose is to provide each other – NETS patients, caregivers, families and friends – with support and practical information. We think globally, but our focus remains on local NYC resources and events.
The Group holds monthly meetings where we share experiences, questions, concerns and advice. We recently partnered with Mount Sinai Hospital to provide a relaxed and safe space to connect with others coping with carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumors. A social worker from the hospital often joins the group to provide emotional and practical support. From time to time we feature professionals who specialize in different areas of Carcinoid and NET treatment and care.
The Group also sponsors quarterly events called Luncheon with the Experts. The luncheons are held in a more formal environment and feature panel discussions and Q&A sessions with leading oncologists, surgeons, researchers, and other specialist in the filed of Neuroendocrine Cancer.
If you live in the greater New York City area and are a NETs patient, caregiver, family or friend, please join us at our next monthly support group meeting. Meetings are free and no reservations required.
