Learn Advocate Connect Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (LACNETS) provides a community of support and education for neuroendocrine tumor (or neuroendocrine cancer or NET) patients and caregivers.


Our educational programs, including webinars, patient education conferences, a video library, podcast, and blog, provide information on diagnosis, treatment options, research and resources. We develop patient-friendly educational content that brings the latest medical information and research studies to NET patients and caregivers.


We advocate for all people impacted by this rare disease to improve health outcomes through early diagnosis. We raise awareness about neuroendocrine and carcinoid cancers among healthcare professionals and with the public.


Our inclusive global community includes NET patients, family members, and caregivers. LACNETS makes it possible for patients to share experiences, encouragement, and hope through support groups, Health Coaching, and NETCONNECT, a buddy program connecting a newly-diagnosed NET patient with a long-time patient.

Make a difference



I was officially diagnosed on June 29, 2022. I didn’t even know NETs existed. And today...less than a month later, I’ve learned so much thanks to the incredible resources that exist as a result of the beautiful NETs community. The resources available, especially the videos from LACNETS and the NET VITALS document, are so life-giving and helpful for the newly diagnosed. LACNETS contributes so much useful information to the NET community.
