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.

A couple of photos from today's #DistrictDays advocacy event, where we've gathered patients, caregivers, friends, family, doctors, and researchers to tell Congress that we need robust #research funding for #kidneycancer through the #NIH and the #CDMRP. A few things to notice: 
· Our efforts today spanned the entire US, with folks meeting virtually as far east as New England and as far west as Hawaii!
· The experts gathered to speak up for research funding represent the University of Hawaii, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
· Every advocacy meeting is data-packed and backed with numbers ... whether you're a doctor, researcher, patient, or caregiver, we make sure you have the information needed to show Congress the importance of funding kidney cancer research. 
Thank you to this all-star team of advocates for their work today! You're #acceleratingcures!
