What Our Donors Are Saying

“I give to NETRF because my wife was diagnosed 20 years ago. And I want to accomplish what any husband would is to have an effective treatment and a cure for my wife’s disease. And we have seen remarkable progress made. But we will only get to a cure if we all work together and do whatever it takes.”

“I gave my first gift to NETRF because I realized that if you’re not in this patient group or among those people who know a patient with this disease, you’ve probably never heard of it and probably not going to give. I was among those patients who decided it’s my responsibility to support this organization because without us? Who?”
