Show your colors for World Kidney Cancer Day by helping us fund more research!

Are we green or orange??

That’s a question we get quite often when it comes to kidney cancer.  The answer is YES. And we are black and white.  We are democrats and republicans.  We are American, German, Mexican, Brazilian, South Korean.  Kidney cancer doesn’t discriminate.  We might not agree on everything – even the color of our ribbon – but we all agree that we want a cure for kidney cancer.

World Kidney Cancer Day is an effort led by the International Kidney Cancer Coalition – a fantastic organization dedicated to bringing advocacy organizations together – to remind the world that we are all united by one common factor – we all are fighting kidney cancer together.  We’re so grateful to be part of this effort and to be standing in unity today.

For our part, in honor of World Kidney Cancer Day – we are proud to announce that our first grant of $100,000 is being awarded to Dr. Wayne Marasco at Dana Farber Cancer Center for his continuing efforts to translate CAR T-Cell Therapy into a new treatment for kidney cancer.

You each played a significant role in that effort – whether it was through a donation, a share or a like on Facebook, following us on twitter.  Thank you for making our first year at KCCure such a huge success.   We hope you’ll consider once again making a donation and contributing to our effort to fund even more research grants!  Together we can find a cure.  Research Begins Here!
