NET Patient Foundation UK in The Telegraph

NET Patient Foundation efforts were the reason to feature the importance of NET in Telegraph Daily, UK.

The report featured a friend of the reporter with NET: “I knew about NETs only because the charity devoted to raising awareness and funding research – the Net Patient Foundation – is a member of Cancer52 , the umbrella organisation that represents 90 small cancer charities, all of whom are working for everyone affected by the rare and less common cancers. So, when Alan – a friend of mine, already suffering from Parkinson’s disease – was diagnosed with NETs, I was able to point him in the direction of the Net Patient Foundation, where he found a massive amount of information and support.“

Telegraph featured that NET is the group of less common cancers, but these account for 50 per cent of all cancers – and 50 per cent of all cancer deaths – in the UK. Collectively, neuroendocrine cancers (NETs) are more common than testicular, ovarian, cervical and thyroid cancers, but are much less well-known and more likely to be misdiagnosed.

Telegraph article reached 4,000 readers in 48 hours.
