The Foundation Dedicated to Discovering a Cure for Neuroendocrine Cancer

Caring for Carcinoid Foundation

Research Action Plan

The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) created a Research Action Plan to revolutionize carcinoid/NET research and rapidly discover a cure.

Our Research Action Plan brings unprecedented clarity, focus, and collaboration to carcinoid/NET research.

Most importantly, our Research Action Plan provides the path to a cure.

CFCF Needs Your Support

CFCF's Research Action Plan is aggressive in order to revolutionize carcinoid/NET research and rapidly discover a cure.

However, success depends on your generosity.  We can only move as fast as our fundraising.

100% of all donations support cutting-edge carcinoid research.

Thank you!

CFCF Leadership Role

The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) is leading the way in carcinoid research.  Our leadership role is critical for three reasons:

  • Today, carcinoid research receives very little NIH funding
  • Today, carcinoid research is not well coordinated at the national and international levels
  • Today, carcinoid research is not well integrated between the scientific community, pharmaceutical industry, and government

Therefore, we created an aggressive Research Action Plan based on our:

  • Board of Scientific Advisors - guidance from highly esteemed leaders in cancer research
  • Research Road Map - 3 steps to unlock the genetic causes of carcinoid and develop novel, targeted therapies
  • Research Symposium - annual research symposium to discuss our latest findings and agree on the urgent priorities for carcinoid research

CFCF Collaboration Model

The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) believes in a collaborative approach to discovering a cure for carcinoid.  Therefore, we are working hard to integrate five groups into one team:

  • Patients
  • Doctors
  • Researchers
  • Pharmaceutical Companies
  • Government (NCI, NIH, FDA, and Congress)

Everyone has a critical role to play, and we welcome your participation.  Together, we will work as one team to discover a cure for carcinoid.
