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 support group Zoom meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 28, 2023. The meeting will start at 10am and go until noon. For people new to the group send an email to Caryn Jamero at
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. Meetings could be longer if we have NET Doctors presenting to the group.
The invitation & Link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out the week before the scheduled meeting. Typically we will send out a Save The Date notice when a firm meeting date has been decided.
We do not know yet when we may be able to return to the Fred Hutch Cancer Center for in-person meetings.
