Contributers, participants, cancer patients and supporters gathered at The 13th Annual Celebration of Life Gala at the Sterling in Bethpage, New York.

Oncologist, Dr. Ed Wolin, was this year's recipient of Outstanding Leadership Care & Compassion With Treatment for NET Cancer Patients.

As Director of the Neuroendocrine Tumor Program at Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, Dr. Wolin brings a robust research program to Montefiore, including multiple clinical trials. His research efforts focus on finding treatments which are more effective and less toxic, including pasireotide, lanreotide, everolimus, other m-TOR inhibitors, targeted radiation including peptide receptor radiotherapy with Lu-177, anti-angiogenic drugs, novel targeted biologic anti-cancer treatments and targeted treatment of liver metastases. Dr. Wolin’s research is also directed at development of new imaging and diagnostic procedures for carcinoid/neuroendocrine tumors.

Dr. Wolin treats all types of carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumors, ranging from tumors of the small intestine (carcinoid), pancreas, lung and colon to those of the rectum, appendix, stomach and other sites. These include hormone-producing tumors such as carcinoid (serotonin), gastrinoma (gastrin), insulinoma (insulin), glucagonoma (glucagon), VIPoma (VIP); liver metastasis, and carcinoid syndrome.

Dr. Wolin is a critical member of Montefiore’s outstanding multidisciplinary neuroendocrine team, that includes medical oncologists, surgeons, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, as well as specialists in nuclear medicine, interventional radiology, diagnostic radiology, and other areas.

Edward M. Wolin, MD is an internationally recognized Neuroendocrine Medical Oncologist. Patients from all over the United States and abroad come to see him for access to personalized care and the latest diagnostic and therapy programs.  

Dr. Wolin graduated from Reed College in Portland, Oregon  and received his MD degree From Yale School of Medicine at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.  After serving as intern and resident in Internal Medicine at Stanford University, he became a clinical fellow at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland.  He returned to Stanford to complete his Fellowship in Medical Oncology before starting his academic career on the faculty of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.

 Dr. Wolin was previously the Director of Neuroendocrine and GI Oncology Program and the Director of Clinical Research at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.  For the preceding 26 years, he held key positions at Cedars–Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he founded and directed of one of the largest and most productive Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Tumor Programs in the country.

What is Neuroendocrine Cancer?

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is the umbrella term for a group of unusual, often slow- growing cancers, which arise from neuroendocrine cells found throughout the body. For years this group of cancers was identified as a specific disease called carcinoid. This term is being slowly replaced in medical literature by the term NETs.

NCAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in 2004.  Their Mission is to intensify awareness of Neuroendocrine Cancer including Carcinoid. NCAN provides access to information about NETs, and funding for NET cancer research. For the past 12 years NCAN has provided information and support to NET patients and caregivers through e-mail, their web site, and toll free phone number.  Their phone line is open 7 days a week 9 am – 9 pm EST, 365 days a year! The phone line is answered by a patient or a caregiver at all times. This is very important to them .  They want you to know the person on the other end of the phone understands first hand about the disease. Several thousand free information packets have been mailed worldwide.  They provide many support groups worldwide with information, merchandise, awareness items and financial support.

Did you ever wonder where the Zebra mascot got started, or those stuffed zebras and zebra bracelets came from? They were designed by CCAN back in 2003. You can say  they were "The Original ZEBRA". It describes NET patients well because no two zebra's stripes are the same and NO two NET Cancer patients are the same. The other reason is that in medical school students are taught when hearing hoof beats think horses not zebras. In other words, look for the common not the uncommon or rare. Since then over 450,000 bracelets have been distributed to date. We also distribute other awareness items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, tote bags, rulers, lapel pins, x-mas ornaments and car magnets.

NCAN has produced nearly 40 conferences both national and regional around the country. These events have been beneficial for thousands of patients and their families. With these conferences,  they keep patients up-to-date on information impacting the decisions made regarding their care, including new diagnostics and treatments available and upcoming. NCAN has been a proud member of The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society since 2006, providing funding and support. Maryann Wahmann has been serving on the NANETS advisory board since 2009, now also serving on the advisory board of The Healing NET Foundation!

NCAN exhibits at medical trade shows and medical meetings such as NANETS, ASCO, ASCO GI, Digestive Disease Week, Interventional Radiology, The American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, & local fairs. They contribute to medical research whenever funding is available. Recipients include The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, The NY Presbyterian Medical Center, LSU NET lab replacement, LSU NET Research Fund, The Doctors Cancer Foundation, The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, University of Iowa , Vanderbilt University and NANETS.
