Dr. Ken Fights Backby Dr. Ken Youner, ACKC medical director & survivor on December 13, 2010
It’s been a long time since I have been active on this blog. It is certainly not been my choice. The problem was that on October 2 I had a very severe accident on my bicycle while training for the second annual ride to raise money for the Cecile and Ken Youner fund for Cancer research. I basically got caught in some debris went head over the bicycle and hit headfirst into the ground. This caused an intense contusion to my cervical spinal cord and thus I have been out of commission until this very time.
I now will try to return to some of my work to help all of those with kidney cancer out there. If at the same time I can help those with disabilities understand that they can do work even with this those disabilities I will even be happier. Thus I hope this isn’t to be only the first of my blogs.
I have had to stop my treatment for kidney cancer because of my severe injury. This of course is a great disappointment to me. But I am doing my best to continue to fight on and do what I can with the time I have left to help those like me in the kidney cancer community and now in the New World of disability.
I hope I can continue working on the Association of Cancer Online Resources (ACOR) list and help those patients as well, and continue to answer questions about kidney cancer. I will continue in the fight and I look forward to communicating further with all of my great friends out there in the world fighting kidney cancer.
