    Please I ask that you support funding for kidney cancer research. This is an underfunded cancer and we need to find a cure. More and more people are being diagnosed with kidney cancer and for too many its too late. Please be a part of the solution and not the problem!

    Currently there is no screening for kidney cancer. Many people have died from this disease because it was not identified until it was too late. Please support research for kidney cancer and please put your efforts into finding a cure for this horrible disease.

    It was God’s hand that I be 1 of the lucky people that survived kidney cancer. The only reason it was found was because of a trip to an e.r. over what was thought to be kidney stones. Nothing made me thing cancer. No tests could’ve told me. This doesn’t have to continue if there is research for a way to test for kidney cancer. Or for people to be able to beat kidney cancer with out loosing a kidney (like me) or worse their lives.

    A dear friend’s kidney cancer was discovered almost accidentally. Thank goodness that her life has been spared. We need to have research continue so that there are tests for kidney cancer. In this day and age, there should be no reason why people are losing lives, kidneys, family members or friends due to a lack of screening. Congress needs to step it up.
