A Legend Lost to Pancreatic NETs

The heartbreaking passing of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin sparked worldwide attention not only within the music industry but also within the cancer community. Ms. Franklin was one of 177,000 Americans living with a neuroendocrine tumor. A third of those patients have a pancreatic neuroendocrine diagnosis, the specific type of cancer Aretha Franklin managed for nearly a decade. Since her cause of death was widely reported as pancreatic cancer, not neuroendocrine cancer, we ask for your help in raising awareness about the nature of NETs.We invite you to take action and support us in our quest for a cure. We've received several gifts honoring Aretha - since her passing and there is still time to give toward this effort. Gifts will fund pancreatic NET research. (MORE)
