On Wednesday, April 29th at 7 pm EDT, Tiffanny and Josh Thomason will be hosting “Music to Ignite NET Research,” a virtual concert featuring Jocelyn Oldham, a Richmond, VA, musician.
This event will support NETRF funded-research and honor recently retired, Aaron Vinik, MD, PhD, a prominent endocrinologist who cared for NET patients for nearly four decades at the Eastern Virginia Medical Center in Norfolk, VA.
All event proceeds will be matched by the Spark Hope campaign, doubling the impact in NET research.
Tiffanny was diagnosed with a small bowel NET in 2017 and a pituitary NET in 2018. She had both carcinoid and Cushing’s syndromes for several years prior to the identification of tumors. She receives her care at the Eastern Virginia Medical Center in Norfolk, VA.
“It’s so important to me and my family to raise awareness about NETs throughout the medical community. We are truly grateful for the counsel we have received from Dr. Vinik and the expertise and wisdom he has shared with his colleagues at EVMS who are taking care of me. This event is a small token of our heartfelt appreciation for his contribution to my care and his medical leadership,” said Tiffanny.
