NET Nurse Donation page (1)

Our current patient to nurse ratio is unsustainable. We aim to push through these challenging times and raise $120,000 for additional NET tele-health nurses.

Ideally, we would like to see at least one NECA specialist NET tele-health nurses in every state and territory of Australia. Until we are able to secure this funding, our current resources are stretched and unsustainable. We urge you to donate today so we can recruit additional NET tele-health nurses.

What would additional NET tele-health nurses mean to our patients?

Despite the increase in Australians being diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs), Neuroendocrine Cancer Australia receives no assistance from the government to fund much needed specialist NET tele-health nurses.

Over the past 16 months, COVID has forced border closures, social distancing and support groups to resort to Zoom. Many patients were unable to have family and friends visit their homes for months on end. Our NET nurse calls are longer and our resources are stretched beyond capacity. Although we face tough times ahead, as an organisation we have always been able to perform on the “smell of an oily rag”, and with your help this will continue. Our patients need over the phone and online NET Nurse support more often, more in depth, more than ever.

Every dollar donated to this page will help fund additional NET tele-health nurses.

What NET Patients have to say about our NET Nurse service, and what NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia means to them.

Help us hit our target of $120,000 to contribute to an additional NET Nurse.

Without your support NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia won’t able to keep up with the consistent growth in demand for our NET Nurse on call service. This service is an important initial, and on going contact point for many patients and carers in  Australia living with neuroendocrine cancer.

Your continued support at this time is greatly appreciated. All donations received are fully tax deductible.
