On November 10th, World NET Cancer Awareness Day, 177 walkers, 18 volunteers, and many family dogs turned out for the first-ever Washington DC Walk for Carcinoid Cancer.

Sanjiv Jain, CEO, eGlobalTech organized a 2-mile fundraising walk to honor his late wife, Sonya Jain, and to promote awareness about neuroendocrine cancers. Sonya Jain, founder, and former CEO, eGlobalTech, passed from neuroendocrine cancer in December 2017, after a long battle with the disease. According to her husband, “In spite of fighting cancer for almost 15 years, Sonya lived life to the fullest – she founded eGlobalTech, raised two beautiful daughters, played sports, enjoyed yoga and traveled worldwide during her short life.”

The event raised more than $40,000 for the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation to fund innovative research to better understand the disease and for improved treatments.  Congratulations to all who participated and supported the DC Walk for Carcinoid Cancer!
