Join our ever-growing TEAM ZEBRA and Run or Walk with NET Zebras to help us fund NET cancer research! Neuroendocrine Cancer (also known as “NET” cancer), affects approximately 15,000 – 20,000 Canadians and can be found in all parts of the body. NETs can be silent for years. When symptoms are present, they’re often unclear and similar to common health problems. 100% of the funds raised will go towards NET cancer research. Please register and choose to run or walk for CNETS Canada. You can also show your support by sponsoring individual TEAM ZEBRA members. THANK YOU!

WORLD NET CANCER DAY
Nov 10 all-day

Sunday, November 10th, 2019 is NET Cancer Day! We are looking for volunteers to help us raise awareness about NET cancer across Canada!

The campaign, “Let’s Talk about NETs” was created by the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA) to draw attention to this increasingly common, but poorly understood cancer and the need for timely diagnosis and access to proper treatment and care for all NET Cancer patients.

We are taking the grass roots approach to this campaign and need your help to get the word out there! Thanks so much to the volunteers who have come forward already.  If you can help us in this awareness effort please email  info@cnetscanada.org
