Tribute to Corie Dean, Founder of the Pacific NW Carcinoid-NET Support Group
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.
