If you heard hoofbeats, what animal would you think of? A horse, right? It's the most obvious answer. Unfortunately, in the medical world, not all diagnoses are horses or the most likely possibility, and sometimes physicians need to look for the zebra — the less likely scenario when making a diagnosis. In the cancer world, neuroendocrine tumors are the zebras. Represented by this analogy because of their rarity, neuroendocrine tumors make up just 2% of nationally treated cancers.
I am so excited to be participating in the 2021 Strides for Stripes Zebra Walk Across America. This cause is very important and has a special place in my heart. Every stride we take is a step in the right direction to improving the lives of thousands who suffer from Neuroendocrine Cancer (NET).
