Corie Dean is recognized as the founder and leader of the Pacific NW Carcinoid NET Support Group from 2006 (founding) to November 2013.
Corie was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer in 1998 after emergency surgery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on Thanksgiving Day. She started the Washington chapter of the Pacific NW Carcinoid-NET Support Group in 2006. In that same year, Corie co-chaired the Pacific NW Carcinoid / NET Symposium in Portland, Oregon. As a result of her active involvement in understanding her cancer, over the years she counseled, informed, and comforted many carcinoid patients and their caregivers.
When her cancer began to significantly progress during 2012 and 2013, Corie traveled to Bad Berka, Germany for four PRRT treatments that enhanced and extended her life. Eventually she succumbed to the cancer in November of 2013.
Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Corie will always remember her efforts at running the support group and her energy and time spent assisting other patients.

The next meeting is scheduled for February 10, 2024. Meeting time will be from 8am to around 1:30pm. This will be a Special meeting in the format of a Webinar presentation by NET physicians at the Fred Hutch Cancer Center. Fred Hutch is hosting this Internet event. The agenda for the presentation has been developed in cooperation with our support group and will be well worth your time. The agenda will be forthcoming.

Our support group meetings are normally on a Saturday and we start at 10am. We try to keep the meetings to no longer than 2 hours. This February meeting will be longer since we have NET Doctors presenting to the group.
The invitation & Link to the meeting will be sent out the week before the scheduled meeting, if not sooner.
We do not know yet when we may be able to return to the Fred Hutch Cancer Center for in-person meetings.
