Please Help Pass a Bill That Could Result in Earlier Diagnosis for Neuroendocrine Cancer Patients

NET patients, friends and families – we need your help! Greta Stifel, founder of the Stifle Cancer Foundation, NET patient thriver, advocate and political activist, has created and submitted to the State of Connecticut Public Health Committee and legislative branches, Bill 5297, for a critical upcoming vote. Now the bill has to go for a vote on the House floor and then it will need to pass the Senate. The bill has the potential to raise greater awareness about neuroendocrine cancer and to possibly result in earlier, proper diagnosis of NET patients.

And passing in Connecticut could create a ripple effect to other states. The bill is an act concerning continuing medical education in colonoscopies and endoscopies and would require education in “screening for gastrointestinal cancers, including colon, gastric, pancreatic and neuroendocrine cancers and other rare gastrointestinal tumors.“ We encourage anyone interested in this important bill to create an email of support by April 13th about how early detection could have made a big difference for you. Send to with a CC to stiflecancerfoundation at Or if you’re a CT resident then we encourage you to contact your state legislator and stress the importance of approving this bill.
