RET Cancer Community Support

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is challenging in many ways, but even more so when patients discover they have a rare cancer subtype. In 2021 RETpositive created the RETpositive Community Facebook page, a community support forum where RET positive cancer patients and caregivers can ask questions, share stories about individual treatments, offer friendship and emotional support, and share tips for improving quality of life while surviving this disease. RETpositive team members are active within this community group on a daily basis and spend a considerable amount of time providing support however we can. Through our awareness efforts, we aim to continuously grow this community group in order to reach and support as many patients as possible.
