You’re Not Alone

I am the founder of Kidney Cancer Connection and my story revolves around my mothers diagnosis. I was 16 years old at the time when we found out my mom had Stage IV Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma which is a form of kidney cancer. My full story is in the first blog post for anybody interested to hear about my experience. My mom is the closest person to me and has always been the most inspirational person that I know. My mom still has cancer, however, through great support from friends and amazing medical help, her cancer cells throughout her body have remained constant and some have even decreased in size!
