About this cause:

Carcinoid Cancer (a subset of Neuroendocrine Cancer) is a rare form of cancer that originates from specialized cells called Neuroendocrine cells. More than 100,000 people in the US are living with Neuroendocrine cancers and the number of those diagnosed is increasing by more than five percent annually. Because symptoms often mimic those of other conditions, the majority of these patients are initially misdiagnosed and the time from onset of symptoms to proper diagnosis often exceeds five years. To date, there are few clues as to what makes these tumors form, change, and grow. There is no cure for this type of cancer and because it is so rare funding for research is scarce.
