The landscape has changed completely from the time of my diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma in 1989.

“Our recent medical meeting was a huge success,” says Bill Bro, CEO of the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA), the world’s largest charity dedicated to the eradication of death and suffering from renal cancers. “Experts from around the globe came to Chicago to share information about kidney cancer research and discuss innovative treatment approaches that help to save the lives of patients,” Bro adds. “The landscape has changed completely from the time of my diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma in 1989. We’ve gone from a time of hopelessness to an era in which patients and medical practitioners have an arsenal of treatments to help those who are dealing with advanced kidney cancer.”
KCA has completed production of an extensive YouTube video playlist that features presentations made by world-renown experts at the 12th International Kidney Cancer Symposium, held in October, 2013. During the month of December, these videos may be conveniently accessed directly from KCA’s home page, http://www.KidneyCancer.org. Bro says, “We’ve put these videos ‘front and center’ on our website, so that both medical professionals and patients can have quick access to information about the latest advances in research.”
KCA was founded in 1990 by a small group of patients, including Eugene P. Schonfeld, Ph.D., and medical doctors in Chicago, Illinois. It is a nonprofit charity incorporated in the State of Illinois. It has also been designated as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service code. Donations to the Association are tax deductible.
