Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 09, 2013
The University of North Carolina will be hosting its first conference for kidney cancer patients and their families on Saturday, February 23, 2013
“This conference brings together an impressive group of specialists from three medical institutions that are widely recognized for their kidney cancer programs,” says 16-year kidney cancer survivor and KCA volunteer, Mike Lawing. “Anyone within driving distance of Chapel Hill who is a kidney cancer patient or caregiver should attend this conference.”
The KCA encourages anyone interested in attending to register in advance by visiting the Association’s website, http://www.kidneycancer.org and selecting calendar of events. The meeting agenda, including list of distinguished speakers is also available on the event page.
“I am so glad that the Kidney Cancer Association, the University of North Carolina, Duke University, and the Levine Cancer Institute are working together to provide such a tremendous conference for patients and survivors of kidney cancer in this region,” said Lawing. “Attendees will not only have an opportunity to learn from the experts, they will have an opportunity to meet and interact with others who are survivors of this relatively uncommon cancer. For some, this conference could be a life-changing event.”
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 KCA are tax deductible.
