Why the zebra stripes?
If you heard hoof beats, what animal would you think of? A horse, right? It’s the most obvious answer. Unfortunately in the medical world not all diagnoses are horses, or the most likely possibility, and sometimes physicians need to look for the zebra, or the less likely scenario, when making a diagnosis. In the cancer world, neuroendocrine tumors are the zebras. Represented by this analogy because of their rarity, neuroendocrine tumors make up just 2% of nationally treated cancers.
With that in mind, we created the Team Nat black and white bracelets, which we wear in order to show our unconditional support for Natalie and promote awareness for neuroendocrine cancers.
Our bracelets have been photographed all over the world. If you have any Team Nat pictures you would like to share with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to include them on our site.
