In recognition of the first Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day, Jeremiah W. (Jay) Nixon, Governor of Missouri, has declared November 10, 2010 to be Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Day. In his proclamation, Governor Nixon talked about the importance of timely diagnosis and proper treatment to ensure that NET cancer patients have significantly improved outcomes and quality of life.
To reach and mobilize a global audience, the Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day campaign organizers have created an interactive website, www.netcancerday.org, which features a Proclamation that visitors are encouraged to digitally sign to show their support for the cause and the people they love. The site also includes information about neuroendocrine tumors, campaign news and photos and a calendar highlighting of events planned across the globe on or around November 10, 2010.
Through a dynamic social media campaign, including Tweets, blogs and a Facebook page dedicated to Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day, people from around the world are encouraged to log onto the website and join the call to action:
- Sign the Worldwide NET Cancer Awareness Day Proclamation
- Share the Proclamation with friends by e-mail
- Follow the Campaign on Twitter
- Fan the Campaign on Facebook
The World NET Community thanks Governor Nixon for supporting carcinoid and neuroendocrine cancer awareness!
