NCAN Will Host Local Patient Conferences and Gala

Join Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network (NCAN), a non-profit organization, in hosting local patient conferences and their annual “Celebration of Life” Gala later this fall. NCAN raises awareness of Neuroendocrine Cancer, provides support for caregivers, and funding for research.

Created 20 years ago by Maryann and Bob Wahmann after Maryann’s cancer diagnosis. She realized there was little information available for people and wanted to start a support group for people going through the same disease as her.

On October 15th, NCAN will host the Long Island Patient Conference. Guest speakers will include: Dr. Hal Gerstein of the Cancer Institute of Long Island, Dr. Aaron Sasson of Stony Brook University, Dr. Diane Reidy-Lagunes of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Dr. Jerome Zacks and Dr. Eric Liu of the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center. They will be discussing the latest research, advice from experts, and top issues patients have.

NCAN with host their National NET Patient Conference in Atlanta, GA from November 10th to the 12th. The three-day event will have more than 20 expert doctors, more than 10 industry vendors, and information about new treatment therapies. There will be information sessions, panels, and the latest research and treatments.

The following week, on November 19th, NCAN will host their annual “Celebration of Life” Gala in Long Island, NY. The event promises to be a fun evening of food, drinks, dancing, raffles, and just being together to celebrate life.

NCAN has produced over 100 conferences. They help keep patients and caregivers up to date on information that may impact the decisions they make regarding their care, including new diagnostics and treatments. It is a great opportunity to connect with other patients and caregivers who understand exactly what they go through.
