International Kidney Cancer Congress invites collaboration with patients and organizations.

Orange Kidney Cancer Ribbon

Kidney Cancer Awareness

We want to make the orange ribbon instantly recognizable as the world symbol representing kidney cancer patient survival.

A Midwestern charity is building the world's largest group of kidney cancer advocates through the International Kidney Cancer Congress, a global coalition of people sharing a mutual interest in the eradication of renal cancers.

Bill Bro, CEO of the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA), says, "We are already collaborating with people in Russia, Poland, France, Italy, Singapore, United States, United Kingdom, and many other countries through KCA. Anyone with an interest in eradicating death and suffering from renal cancers is welcome to join the Congress. We want to make the orange ribbon instantly recognizable as the world symbol representing kidney cancer patient survival."

Congress members are invited to attend a series of webinars conducted by the world's leading experts in the treatment of kidney cancer. In addition to being eligible to enjoy an expanding array of benefits, members learn about cutting-edge therapies for treatment of advanced disease, as well as getting an "insider's view" of what's on the horizon in research.

Current offerings include publications for patients in twelve languages, with more to be added upon recommendation by members of the group. Congress members can use the organization's resources with confidence, because the underlying organization complies with with the HON Code of Conduct for medical and health websites (Honcode), in addition to carrying a Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating (a distinction attained by few charities) and meeting the BBB Wise Giving Alliance Standards.

"Patients and their families should know that, unlike some organizations, we pledge not to sell or rent the names of our constituents to marketers," Bro says. "Congress members will be able to participate in various surveys, some aimed at improving quality of life for those living with kidney cancer, but we won't share member contact information."

"A key aim of this global alliance is speeding along research so that treatments get from the bench to the beside faster," Bro adds. "There has been unprecedented development of new drugs to treat kidney cancer in recent years. In some measure, this is due to our highly effective collaboration with brilliant researchers in academic centers and industry over the past 20 years."

Anyone interested in joining the International Kidney Cancer Congress may join at Kidney Cancer Education L3C, affiliate of the Kidney Cancer Association, does business in Illinois as "IKCC" (acronym for International Kidney Cancer Congress). The Congress may also be found on Facebook and Twitter @IKCCongress.
