NCAN Chapter Support Group meetings are built on the concept of patients helping patients.

Our meetings are all about getting to know people who understand exactly what you’re going through, and about getting you the most up-to-date information on NET testing, treatment options, and lifestyle tips.

Central VA Net/Carcinoid Cancer Support Group was organized in June of 2018. Our group meets every other month in Fredericksburg, VA. Each meeting is a way to connect with others who are experiencing life with Net/Carcinoid Cancer.

CVaNC Support Group is a safe, friendly place to talk, laugh, and even cry; and a place to always be inspired and encouraged. You will always find lots of the most up-to-date information on NET/Carcinoid testing, treatment options, and lifestyle tips available to educate and help you along your journey.

Each NCAN Support Group is led by, and for, people who have, or are caring for someone, with NET/Carcinoid Cancer. Together we understand and can support what each other is going through.

This group is open to all patients, caregivers, and family members as well as those in the medical profession.

We hope you decide to JOIN US at an upcoming meeting…we look so forward to meeting you!
