Health Insurance in Transition: Protecting NET Patients

Friday, March 7, 2014

There is no doubt that the health insurance system in America is undergoing a major transition.  Some of this is a function of the continuing (and accelerating) trend to contain costs, and, more recently, the major changes brought about by the enactment and implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). New plans are being offered, some old plans are no longer available, and many plans are offering limited networks and very high deductibles.

Year-End 2013: A Time of Progress and Possibility

Thursday, December 19, 2013

This may well be the most exciting year in the history of the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation, and for patients and families with carcinoid and neuroendocrine diseases.  I want to thank you for making this possible.  Your past support of the Foundation is transforming what is possible.

Why is this?  First, because we are experiencing new doors opening and new discoveries in research and clinical care - in ways that offer the potential for a real altering to the path of the diseases we face. Second, because our portfolio has broadened with an ambition mix of clinical and basci research projects; and third, because we are attracting new partners and injecting more financial support into the field. Together, these forces offer real change and new breakthroughs.
