In September 2009, Juli Spendley was diagnosed with Neuro-Endocrine Tumors (NETs),
Much like many other forms of cancer, Neuro‐Endocrine Tumors can affect the Liver, Pancreas, Digestive Tract, Bone and the Lungs. However unlike some ore common cancers, NETs are quite rare, it is believed that there are up to 3000 new cases diagnosed every year (only around 1% of the UK cancer diagnosis rate) and are usually slow growing tumours often spreading to multiple organs, and as such are rarely diagnosed at a sufficiently early stage to facilitate effective treatment by conventional methods.
In June 2010, having been frustrated by the general lack of understanding of this life threatening condition,
The Juli Spendley Foundation is currently providing individual financial support for vital Targeted Radiation Therapy to be provided at
the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead for which funding has been denied by the Dorset Primary Care (NHS) Trust
The Foundation is currently seeking charity status.
