We are a non – profit 501 (c) (3) Charity incorporated in 2004. Our Mission is to intensify awareness of Neuroendocrine Tumors & Carcinoid Cancer in both the medical community and general public locally and around the world. CCAN also assists patients and caregivers by providing access to important information about the disease. We provide funding for research into Carcinoid Cancer and other Neuroendocrine tumors.

For the past 7 years CCAN has provided information and support to NET patients and caregivers through e-mail, our web site, and toll free phone number. Thousands of free information packets have been mailed around the world.

Did you ever wonder where those stuffed zebras and zebra bracelets came from? Designed by CCAN, over 200,000 bracelets have been distributed to date. We also distribute other awareness items such as tote bags, rulers, calendars, lapel pins, and car magnets.

CCAN has produced 19 conferences benefiting thousands of patients and their families. With 2 National conferences, 13 regional conferences, and 4 Web conferences under our belts we make sure patients can make informed decisions regarding their care. CCAN provided funding to the National Patient Conferences in 2005, 06,07 & 09 and the International Canadian Conference in 2008. CD ROMs and internet replays of many of these events are available through CCAN for patients around the world.

Why is the Zebra our mascot?
In Medical school doctors are taught “when hearing hoof beats, think of horses not Zebras.” Since Carcinoid & Neuroendocrine cancer patients are relatively rare, they may be thought of as “Zebras.”
