Shared Decision-Making: Understanding Your Immunotherapy Choices

A KidneyCAN Town Hall Event

Our latest Town Hall focused on immunotherapy for kidney cancer patients. If you missed the live event, you can watch here.

Watch as leading experts discuss shared decision making and the current immunotherapy options for patients with kidney cancer.

This event has already taken place, but you can watch the full video, including the doctors’ discussions and the patient/caregiver Q & A that followed.

An informed patient is an empowered patient.

We at KidneyCAN know how challenging it can be to keep up with research developments and how they could impact your treatment options. We hope the ideas presented in our Town Hall help you as you work with your doctor to manage your care for kidney cancer.

If you’re looking to connect with more people who share your challenges and can offer support, check out our Smart Patients forum.

Join Our Grassroots Army

We know that awareness of kidney cancer and its impact on many lives leads to a sense of urgency, a desire for solutions. Awareness leads to advocacy, and advocacy — joining to speak as one voice — leads to funding and research. That’s how we get to cures.

Did you know? #KidneyCancer is the 6th most prevalent cancer in men and the 9th most prevalent cancer in women, yet it has been a historically underfunded area of research. 

We are working to change that, but we need your help! Join us with a couple hours of your time on Tuesday, March 12th! We're organizing meetings with Members of Congress to ask for robust funding for kidney cancer research. 

When you share your story, you make an impact!
