February 28, NANETS recognizes Rare Disease Day, a time to raise awareness amongst the public and medical professionals about the impact rare disease has on a patient's life.

Improving access to treatment and medical representation for individuals and families experiencing rare disease is important to acknowledge and to address. As the NANETS community knows, neuroendocrine cancer is a rare disease that affects 12,000 new patients each year and can often take years to diagnose.

The goal of the NET cancer awareness day is to increase awareness of neuroendocrine cancers and provide a platform for the greater NET community for improved diagnostics, treatment, information, care, and research. This year's theme is "early diagnosis makes a difference."

Supporting the day is easy. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Join the NET community worldwide on November 10th by participating in virtual conversations about neuroendocrine cancer using the hashtag, #LetsTalkAboutNETs.
  • Like, post and share NANETS' short NET awareness videos posted throughout the day Monday and Tuesday, November 9 and 10.
  • Be an ambassador for NET awareness and commit to making a difference by working with the medical community to:
    • Educate all medical professionals on neuroendocrine cancer and what to look for to help provide the proper diagnosis
    • Be a mentor to an early career medical professional interested in diagnosis, treatment and research related to neuroendocrine cancer
    • Advance the message of NET disease awareness by encouraging patients to participate in NET patient organizations
    • Support patients in encouraging their medical professionals to join NET medical societies like NANETS to learn from, and share information with, the multidisciplinary NET medical community
