Stifle Cancer Foundation

A MESSAGE OF HOPE

Since her diagnosis, Greta has become a dedicated patient advocate/activist and is raising awareness of Neuroendocrine Tumor and Carcinoid Cancer. Because of the complexity and rareness of Greta’s cancer, she stresses the importance of getting a second, third and even 4th opinions and the significance of the getting the best care possible, wherever that may be, out of state or abroad and understanding and knowing your cancer and asking a lot of questions – if you don’t know what you don’t know, how will you know? Empower yourself with knowledge and information. “I want to live as full of a life as I can everyday and wish to inspire, educate, motivate and help people take charge of their health. I want to do as much as I can and make my life and cancer journey count for something. I will not allow cancer to define me nor bring me down (or others around me). I will not live a long healthy life as I had planned. My goal is to not have others suffer as I am and ultimately my efforts will hopefully save lives or extend time for those afflicted, along the way.”
