Simon and Selina Robinson
We are passionate about raising awareness about neuroendocrine tumours and this little known cancer.
NET Cancer Foundation provides people who have been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour with whatever help and support they need.
In 2019 we are working to raise funds for the Nuclear Medicine Department at Guys Hospital, London via fundraising events such as Gala Dinners, Community Days, Sponsored Walks etc.
NET cancer is an acronym for Neuroendocrine tumour. NET or NET's is an umbrella term for a group of unusual, often slow-growing cancers, which arise from the neuroendocrine cells found throughout the body. For years, this group of cancers was identified as a specific disease called carcinoid.
***Both Steve Jobs and Aretha Franklin died from Pancreatic Cancer which had been caused by a neuroendocrine tumour***
Simon Robinson is the Director of NET Cancer Foundation. He set up the foundation after being diagnosed with NET Cancer in June 2017. After various tests, scans and a biopsy it was discovered that he had a neuroendocrine tumour. Treatment in the form of monthly injections began which will be ongoing for the rest of his life. After a couple of months he was offered the chance for treatment at Guys Hospital. This was part of a clinical trial which has since been NHS approved therefore increasing the chance of survival to many more sufferers. After undergoing treatment at Guys Hospital, Simon is now an Ambassador for NET Cancer Foundation and gives talks about his experiences.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for anybody who needs support after they or a family member has been diagnosed with NET Cancer.
Your support and contributions will enable us to support the Nuclear Medicine department at Guy's Hospital in 2019. Your generous donation will help many more in their goal to be cancer free.
