CNETS Canada Support Groups

CNETS Canada has Patient Support Groups in different locations across Canada.

Support Groups are warm, caring communities that provide much needed information, support and encouragement to patients and their families and friends. Family members and caregivers are welcome to attend meetings. We will share our stories/journeys with each other and any new information regarding treatments, diagnostics, scans etc.

Please refer to EVENT CALENDAR  for Support Group meeting locations, dates, times and RSVP information.

If you would like more information on Support Groups or Support Contacts, please contact the Patient Coordinator by email at support@cnetscanada.org or  toll free at 1-844-628-6788.

Please be advised that due to low patient participation we are amalgamating the Brampton support group with the Toronto support group.  We will no longer hold regular support meetings in Brampton but our Support Group Leader, Peter Glynn, will still be available to assist patients in the area as needed.  We extend a huge thanks to Peter for making such a tremendous commitment to the neuroendocrine patient community through his excellent leadership of the Brampton Support Group
