Today we honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, who said in 1966: "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and the most inhuman because it often results in physical death." He was speaking at the Medical Committee for Human Rights annual meeting in Chicago.
The mission of KidneyCAN is to accelerate cures for kidney cancer. We believe that means accelerating cures for everyone through a commitment to practices that promote equity, diversity, and inclusion. Here's to continued antiracist work that addresses systemic inequities in health care, including access to clinical trials.

Season of Inspiration! We asked our community to share what inspires them on hard days. 
Bill says, "Knowing that kidney cancer can return at any time reminds me that part of each day must be spent doing something joyful. In the many years since diagnosis, I’ve found that supporting animal adoption brings happiness to many people."
Love this! Do something JOYFUL every day. 
What makes you feel #inspired this season? Please share your story with us at info@kidneycan.org to be featured on our pages!
