The Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF) is the leading private funder of research into causes and treatments of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) to improve and extend the lives of those living with NETs.
“In 2012, my husband was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) cancer. At that time, there was little information and few treatment options,” said Suzanne Ludlow, NETRF Board Member and generous benefactor of NETRF’s second edition of “Neuroendocrine Cancer: A Guide for Patients and Families.” Suzanne lost her beloved husband Vincent in 2017, but she’s honoring his life while supporting other patients and families navigating NETs as a new member of the NETRF Board of Trustees.

After Leanne lost her husband of 31 years to pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer (pNETs), she sold his most beloved possession, a Bass boat, and donated half of the proceeds to NETRF. Leanne, her son Justin and their family and friends have raised more than $35,000 in Michael’s name for NETRF. She shares their story.
