Dave is a long-term Carcinoid survivor—it’s been 21 years since his diagnosis. He states, “If there is an ‘average’ patient experience with Carcinoid, I’d be near that average”. He has participated in several clinical trials including the “Stable Patient Arm of the Ga-68” trial through Dr. O’Dorisio at the University of Iowa. He has attended most of the NCAN national conferences over the last 15 years, and started the Michigan Carcinoid Group about 15 years ago with the theme of “Sharing Information, Caring for Each Other”. Dave is about to retire for the second time and hopes it sticks this time. Living in Grand Rapids, MI he enjoys travel and working at his daughters equestrian center.
