Our mission is clear
Neuroendocrine Cancer New Zealand is dedicated to revolutionising the way that Neuroendocrine (NET) cancers are diagnosed and managed in New Zealand.
We are New Zealand's national charity focused on supporting neuroendocrine cancer patients and their whānau. We provide education and support to help Kiwis with neuroendocrine cancer to live their best life. We also build knowledge and awareness of the disease amongst the medical community. Our fundraising and advocacy means that New Zealanders now have access to state of the art diagnostics and treatment. We provide a link between patients and researchers who are working to better understand and treat this uncommon group of cancers.
