Story

I am doing the Race for Life on behalf of research for NETs Cancer. If you would like to know about this cancer please visit the NET Patient Foundation page, which is the UK based charitable organisation to support patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours, including their family and friends, https://www.netpatientfoundation.org/

I am a NET patients, diagnosed in June 2015, I am in my mid fifties,married with children, and one grandchild. I strongly believe that I still have a full life to live, with plenty of new experiences and opportunities to enjoy along the way.

I have a Neuroendocrine tumour in my small intestine, which has metastasised to my liver as well as various lymph nodes. I cannot be cured, but medication along with regular tests and scans will hopefully help to keep it under control and manageable.

Awareness of this cancer is not very high, and as such can take many years to diagnose, and many are found by accident, often as a result of medical interventions relating to other conditions. So as well as raising money, I also want to help raise awareness, and hope that this will once go someway towards this.

The Net Patient Foundation is a great source of support, and I have met many new and lovely people in the same situation as me, making new friends both in the UK and abroad.

So this is a way of giving something back.

If you would like to know more, please check out the NETs site, Facebook page, and Twitter feed. I also write a blog too, and if you would like to follow my journey here is the link to a "A Road Less Travelled": https://crystaltipps24.com/
