San Diego Neuroendocrine Tumor Patient Support Group
The mission of our group is to provide support through group discussion and a mentoring program, to share challenges and experiences, to learn about prognosis and treatment options, to provide the latest information about the diagnosis and treatment of NETS including carcinoid tumors, and to facilitate access to resources for patients, families, friends and caregivers. We share our experiences in a comforting, emotionally supportive and caring environment.
The group meets once a month, usually the third Saturday at 10 am at the San Rafael Community Center in Rancho Bernardo; light refreshments are offered. The typical meeting format begins with a presentation on a selected topic followed by an open forum. New members are welcomed and asked to share their journey with the group. All members may seek insights for managing their disease, particularly as treatments or new challenges arise.
