Belgian insulinoma patient tells her story

24 year old Kristina was diagnosed with a NET in March 2013 after a long period of misdiagnoses.

Several doctors dismissed her complaints over the course of a number of  years.

After she fell into a coma  they finally found it was an insulinoma (and no, no drugs!) on her pancreas that caused all her problems.

Kristina decided to raise more awareness about NETs in Belgium by telling her story and writing daily on her blog: about hope and worries, and her PRRT treatment.

She organized an awareness campaign, raised money, got articles in magazines and last week she decided to work as a volunteer in our Belgian NET & MEN patient group.

We are so pleased that Kristina wants to share her story and helps other people in an similar situation.
