Supporting NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia Research

Help support Neuroendocrine Cancer research

Neuroendocrine cancers impact men, women and children of all ages.

More commonly located in the pancreas, lungs, abdomen, reproductive organs and bowel, NET cancer symptoms can include, weight loss, hot flushes, shortness of breath and diarrhoea.  Neuroendocrine Cancers (NETs) are frequently misdiagnosed with conditions such as: anxiety, menopause, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or diabetes.  60% of NETs are advanced by the time patients are correctly diagnosed and many patients have secondary growths at the time of diagnosis (stage 4 cancer).

Despite the increase in Australians being diagnosed with a Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs), the Neuroendocrine Cancer community of dedicated researchers and clinicians receives limited assistance from the government to fund much needed clinical trials and research.
 
With the recent stimulus packages that were announced to combat COVID-19, all government funding for medical research and not-for-profit charities will dramatically reduce and in some areas cease to exist.
