2012 Minnesota NET Cancer Awareness Day Proclamation – November 10, 2012

We are pleased to announce that Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed November 10, 2012 NET Cancer Awareness Day. The proclamation reads as follows:

State of Minnesota


Whereas:  Neuroendocrine tumors (NETS) often develop into cancer and, if left untreated, can result in serious illness and death; and

Whereas:  Healthcare professionals often underestimate the malignant and metastatic potential of neuroendocrine tumors; and

Whereas:  NET cancer patients are often misdiagnosed or receive a delay of diagnosis, which can have a negative impact on their chance of survival and quality of life;

Whereas:  Survival for NET cancer patients is further compromised by fragmented care and lack of access to treatment by networks of specialists; and

Whereas:  Although there have been advances in the detection and treatment of NET cancers, not all patients are benefiting quickly enough from scientific and medical
progress in the field; and

Whereas:  With timely diagnosis and proper treatment, NET cancer patients have significantly improved outcomes and quality of life.

Now, Therefore, I, Mark Dayton, Governor of Minnesota, do hereby proclaim November 10, 2012 as:

Net Cancer Awareness Day
in the State of Minnesota

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Minnesota to be affixed at the State Capitol on this 17th day of October.

Mark Dayton
