2016 Hero of Hope Award winner and cancer survivor Maryann Wahmann encourages patients with cancer and their families to reach out and seek support, noting that no one needs to go through cancer alone.
Maryann, a carcinoid cancer survivor, and her husband helped grow a small support group to more than 100 patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). They also launched the nonprofit organization Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network, which offers a carcinoid cancer hotline; organizes national and regional conferences; and hosts fundraisers, including an annual walk that was started by her daughter, Tricia.
