With great sadness, we note the passing of two friends and members of the NETRF community.
, leader of the Houston NET support group, died on October 14, 2018, 12 years after his NET diagnosis. David helped many NET patients by being a resource and leading through example, by living a full life with family, friends, golf, travel, sports, and grilling for Sunday family dinners. We were fortunate to work with David when we planned our 2018 Houston NET Patient and Caregiver Conference. He was a member of the Patient and Caregiver panel
, sharing his advice and positive attitude with the group.
Beth Ripston passed on October 28, 2018, in New York City. Beth served on NETRF’s Audit and Investment Committee, sharing expertise she gained during a successful 33-year career in finance. Beth was kind and caring. She was a member of the Big Apple NET Support group and active as a minister in her church, Marble Collegiate Church.
All of us at NETRF send our sympathies to David’s and Beth’s family and friends. We will miss them.
