Our life changed forever when my husband Rick was diagnosed with Stage IV aggressive clear cell renal carcinoma on New Years Eve of 2018.
In the beginning, all I knew was fear until I joined KCCure. The amazing support we have received is beyond anything I could ever have imagined. Because of KCCure we went for a second opinion and found an AMAZING RCC oncologist, Dr. Chuck Drake, at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.
My husband is currently in a clinical trial and responding well. We have HOPE again. I want to help others realize there is HOPE. I want them to know there are many tomorrows left.
Our Story is FAR from OVER and I want others in the same situation to know neither is there’s.
