Kidney Cancer Advocacy Days
In 2016, Congress allocated $0 in funding dedicated to kidney cancer research. Through the power of advocacy, we have raised that number to $135 million in five years.
On March 7–8, our Spring Advocacy Days event was held, and we asked Congress to continue funding lifesaving research for kidney cancer patients.
We need people like YOU to join us at our next event!
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 protected].

WE NEED YOU
This money isn’t a given. We’ve had to fight for it, year after year. In this video, Dr. Andrew Smith, a kidney cancer researcher from the University of Alabama, explains the impact of this funding on his work and the state of Alabama.
When you meet with Congress, 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!
