Carcinoid Cancer Foundation Sets Sights on Raising Awareness
Date:3/2/2009

experts on these rare cancers, explains "that although a number of new drugs are being developed and tested, at present the only cure for carcinoid/NETs is dependent on early detection and surgery before these cancers have spread from their original site of origin."

The CCF is a non-profit organization that strives to encourage and support research, in addition to educating the general public and healthcare professionals, about carcinoid cancer and NETs. Recently, the CCF has drawn attention to its cause through its "Zebra Ball - Stars for Stripes" (http://www.thezebraball.com), an annual benefit event held at The Peninsula Chicago to support The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation(tm). This year's ball, so named because zebra stripes symbolize "camouflaged" conditions, featured the stories of carcinoid cancer patient Don Meyer, Northern State University's (Aberdeen, S.D.) basketball coach, and cancer survivor Kari Jones of Indianapolis. The gala coincided with Valentine's Day, which has been designated by Mayor Richard Daley as Carcinoid Cancer Awareness Day in Chicago.
