A NET cancer diagnosis can affect the emotional health of patients, families, and caregivers. In this episode, we’re going to do something a little different. We have spent a lot of time in this series talking about the science of NETs, but a NET cancer journey is not just about biology. The NET journey can be an intensely emotional experience and learning to deal with the emotions can be just as difficult, but as important as treating the disease itself.
