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.

Founder of USA based carcinoid outreach since 2011, met Ronny in 2014 and discussed Patient based outreach and he has surpassed all expectations and won last year. Let's continue his important work on a broad scale.  — Lin

The medical data, insight and experience Ronny collates and shares on his website and FB page on this rare disease (NET cancer) have been an enormous source of information and hope for me and my family.  — Michael
