Kidney Cancer Patient Communities

Facebook cover-3

When faced with a new cancer diagnosis, research shows that patients experience trauma, grief and feelings of isolation. Connecting with other patients can help you overcome emotional barriers to care and become empowered to advocate for your needs.

KCCure Communities are designed to provide support, protect privacy and promote accuracy.

If you have been diagnosed with kidney cancer, find the right community for you.
