Why Zebra Ducks? The Zebra part is based on a theme of medical doctor training to diagnose hoof prints for the common horse and not the more exotic zebra. As a result, NET cancer patients associate with the zebra because their symptoms mirror many common illnesses and often spend years before getting the correct diagnosis. The duck part is because I like ducks…calm on the outside and paddling like crazy underneath!
And there really are Zebra Ducks!
