ncan support groups – michigan chapter

Meet Dave

Dave is a long term Carcinoid survivor of 21 years since his DX. He states ” If there is an “average” patient experience with Carcinoid, I’d be near that average”. He has participated in several Clinic Trials including the Stable Patient arm of the Ga-68 trial through Drs. O’Doriso at the University of Iowa. He has attended most of the National conferences over the last 15 years. Dave started the Michigan Carcinoid Group about 15 years ago with the theme of “Sharing information, Caring for Each other”. Dave is retired for the second time and hopes it “sticks” this time. He enjoys travel with Lynn, his wife of 40+ years, and working at his daughter’s equestrian center in Lowell and migrating between Grand Rapids and Nashville, TN.
