Ronny Allan

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with incurable Metastatic Neuroendocrine Cancer in July 2010 after presenting with weight loss, symptoms of iron deficiency and facial flushing (Carcinoid Syndrome). I like to be factual, educational and with the occasional pinch of humour. I also want to inspire my community by putting a positive spin on life whilst retaining an element of both sympathy and empathy. I'm an internationally known advocate for Neuroendocrine Cancer using my blog to spread awareness and facts about this unusual, less common and complex disease. Consequently, I'm very passionate about moving Neuroendocrine Cancer into mainstream knowledge circles by finding brand new audiences.
