The day before the world NET cancer day
Zebras take the vineyard by storm!
Sunday November 9, 2014 – all day


Le Sourire de Sabrina” (Sabrina’s Smile) is a positive, cheerful association. It was founded in March 2014 to continue the fight of a young woman named Sabrina, who passed away in December 2013, after putting up an admirable fight against the most aggressive form of NET cancer: a poorly differentiated neuroendocrine tumor. She had just turned 33.

The purpose of the association is:

–         to raise awareness of NETs and to turn the spotlight on its zebra ribbon symbol and on this little-known type of cancer.

–         to support research into NETs.

–         to help improve cancer patient comfort.

This is why Le Sourire de Sabrina is organizing the first “Zebra Day” (“Journée Zébrée”, which rhymes in French), with the following events:

–         In the morning, a run (“les foulées zebrées”) and a walk (“la balade vigneronne”) in the vineyard. All participants will wear the zebra ribbon

–         Introduction to line dancing

–         Painting and photography exhibition

–         Walking with donkeys (cousins to zebras)

–         Evening concert

APTED and Professor LECOMTE, an NET specialist in Tours, have been invited and will attend.
