Following on from the success of last years fundraising walk in the rain and the mud, we will be doing a re-run (or should that be re-walk!) on the 8th January 2017. Once again the 'The Rambling Potters' will be doing a sponsored walk on behalf of the NET Patient
Foundation. Which is the UK based charitable organisation to support patients with
Neuroendocrine Tumours, including their family and friends
I am one of those patients, diagnosed in June 2015 I am in my mid fifties,
married with children, and one grandchild. I
strongly believe that I still have a full life to live, with plenty of new
experiences and opportunities along the way.
I have a Neuroendocrine tumour in my small intestine, which has metastasised to m liver as well as various lymph nodes. I cannot be cured, but medication along with regular tests and scans will hopefully help to keep it under control and manageable.
It is a fairly rare cancer and as such can take many years
to diagnose, and many are found by accident, often as a result of medical
interventions for another condition. So as well as raising money, I also
want to help raise awareness, and hope that this sponsored walk will once again go someway
The Net Patient Foundation is a great source of support, and I have met many new and lovely people in the same situation as me. As well as making new friends both in
the uk and abroad. So this walk is a way of giving something back.
If you would like to know more, please check out the NETs site, Facebook page, and Twitter feed. I also write a blog too, and if you would like to follow my journey here is the link to a "A Road Less Travelled": https://crystaltipps24.com/
