The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation's blog gives the latest information about carcinoid cancer and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). It offers resources such as how to find a specialist to treat these rare cancers; listings and descriptions of national and international conferences; links to support groups; information about awareness items; and highlights on topics of interest including carcinoid heart disease. The blog is intended for all members of the carcinoid/NET community -- patients, family members, friends, caregivers, and members of the medical community. Created in October 2009, the carcinoid blog is linked to the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation’s (CCF) website, http://www.carcinoid.org. Nearly 1,000,000 people from more than 100 countries worldwide have visited CCF’s website, considered to be one of the most authoritative sources for NET information. Founded in 1968, CCF has earned worldwide recognition as a resource for patients, medical professionals, and researchers.
