Supporting the

Neuroendocrine Cancer Community

I became a Trustee of the then NET Patient Foundation (now Neuroendocrine Cancer UK) in 2012 because I was keen to support this charity which was a great help to me following my diagnosis of a mid-gut neuroendocrine cancer with liver metastasis in 2011. I spent all my working life in the field of education, initially in Further Education and then transferring into Higher Education with the Open University (at Oxford and Milton Keynes) and subsequently moving to the University of Southampton as a senior manager. I am now retired and enjoy gardening, walking, studying geology and travelling when possible. As a Trustee I feel it is a great privilege to be a part of the NCUK team. Although we are a small charity, the staff work very hard to improve awareness, increase support structures, improve healthcare education in this medical area, raise vital funds for research and be a strong voice for all in the Neuroendocrine Cancer community.
