The Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network (NCAN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in 2004. 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.
NCAN has produced nearly 40 conferences both national and regional around the country. These events have been beneficial for thousands of patients and their families. With these conferences, we keep patients up-to-date on information impacting the decisions made regarding their care, including new diagnostics and treatments available and upcoming. NCAN has been a proud member of The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society since 2006, providing funding and support.
NCAN also exhibits at medical trade shows and medical meetings such as NANETS, ASCO, ASCO GI, Digestive Disease Week, Interventional Radiology, The American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, & local fairs. We contribute to medical research whenever funding is available.
