“Blush the Zebra” is a warm and tender story about being sick. The author, Frank Geleyn, а professional Belgian writer and a NET patient himself, wrote the story to comfort fellow patients, give them strength, but also to raise awareness about neuroendocrine tumors, a rare and unknown disease. The zebra is the global symbol for NET patients.
The plot follows Blush the zebra trying to keep up with the herd. Being sick and constantly tired, Blush is afraid of falling behind. When finally left behind, unexpected support arrives. This is an inspiring book about the power of the weaker and the comfort in the herd.
vzw NET & MEN Kanker Belgium is going to fully support the book. “Blush the Zebra“ will be officially presented at the Belgian book fair in Antwerp, with a panel discussion, exactly on World NET Cancer Day – Sunday, November 10th, 2019. The book fair in Antwerp is the largest in Belgium, with about 150 000 visitors each year.
