Information is Key

My mandate is to keep searching for whatever information is out there about kidney cancer. It is through seaching websites, asking others, and attending seminars that we learn what works and what doesn't. You just can't always assume that your physician knows everything there is about your type of cancer.

A dear friend passed along some information to me yesterday with regards to the upcoming Nevada National Patient & Survivor Conference on June 20th. I would encourage patients, survivors, caregivers and families to attend. The day long seminar will include a luncheon offering support discussion for patients/caregivers, there's lectures on the types of treatments for RCC and dietary updates. Follow this link and then scroll down the page to "Calendar of Events" , go to Nevada National Patient & Survivor Conference and then DETAILS. Apparently there is no link to take you directly to the page

The Kidney Cancer Association offers various seminars throughout the US. No doubt there's one in your area so I'll pass along another link showing the entire list. Scroll down to "Calendar of Events" to see the entire list

Just as today's song "The River" by Garth Brooks relates to all of us that we can choose to sit on the shoreline and do nothing about our adversities, or we can choose to chance the rapids and dance in the tides.
