2022 District Days
In 2016, Congress allocated $0 in funding dedicated to kidney cancer research. Through the power of advocacy, we have raised that number to $185 million in six years.
KidneyCAN hosts several advocacy events each year to ensure that funding stays in place and grows to meet research needs.
Our third District Days event took place on August 8-9th. Stay tuned for event updates and outcomes, which we’ll share here in the weeks ahead.

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
We provide training with Advocacy 101, a detailed guide to help you know what to expect and how to talk to your representatives about kidney cancer research funding. You will receive a meeting schedule, talking points, scripts you can use if you would like, and leave-behind documents.
If you have any questions, please reach out! We welcome anyone with a passion for accelerating cures for kidney cancer. Contact our Legislative Patient Advocacy Lead, Debra Beyhan, at email@example.com.
From 2018-2023 we have had 980 advocates attend 1,316 congressional meetings.

WE NEED YOU
This money isn’t a given. We’ve had to fight for it, year after year. We provide our advocates with training and a toolkit so that you can share your story with Congressional representatives in small meetings. You’ll help them understand the impact of kidney cancer on people’s lives and the urgent need for a cure. Join us and make your voice heard!
