Northwoods NETS is pleased to announce that Senator Mark Dayton has proclaimed Friday, November 10th, NET Cancer Awareness Day in the state of Minnesota. We thank Governor Dayton for his continued recognition of this unusual cancer. It is estimated that approximately 300 Minnesotans are diagnosed with each year with this poorly understood disease. NETS, also known as neuroendocrine tumors, are considered rare tumors that have either benign or malignant behaviors.
We are about a month away from NET Cancer Day, an international awareness day to help shine a light on neuroendocrine cancers. There are many ways you can help to make an impact on this upcoming NET Cancer Day: Talk to your friends and family about your disease Host an event in your neighborhood – a walk, dinner or a vigil Share NET Cancer Day events and ribbons on your social
