Neuroendocrine cancer (neuroendocrine tumor or NET) and COVID-19 share some similarities. They’re both equalizers. They don’t discriminate based on socioeconomic class, age, gender, religion, or politics. They also teach us similar lessons. We are learning to pace ourselves for a marathon rather than a sprint. We are learning to be flexible…to make friends with change as we live with uncertainty. And we are learning to find a new normal, one in which we become more attentive and proactive about our health and wellness.
LACNETS understands that NET doesn’t slow down for the coronavirus. While we try to stay safe with physical distancing, we must continue to be informed about our disease. To those affected by NET, knowledge is empowering. It helps regain control and make better decisions for ourselves.
Educated patients tend to be happier patients as they have better expectations and feel more comfortable navigating this journey.
— Dr. Tom Hope
