Jump to: navigation, search



This resource was started and created by Kidney Cancer patients who found it hard to hunt down the information they needed to properly judge their own condition and make informed decisions.

We would like to thank all who help now and have helped in the past - Health Professionals, family, friends, carers and fellow patients - We dedicate this site to them for you. When a Challenge like cancer hits you, panic can sometimes get the better of you. Our hope is that this resource will give anyone the information they need to ensure they are getting the best treatment & follow-up care and to help them to be more able to communicate how they feel.

This is your site, and as we all learn we help ourselves. With knowledge comes strength and the capacity to make informed decisions, or at the very least a better understanding that helps us ask the right questions.

KCR is a Non-Profit organistation and has no affiliations to pharmaceutical companies so it can remain truly independent.

Any related non profit organisations wishing to contribute information or link to the site please feel free to do so, we hope it helps. If KCR can help in anyway then please contact us via e-mail and we will try our best. If you want to create a section for your organisation then please do so at this link

  • To communicate in plain every day English to help those who have an interest in the Challenges of kidney cancer and related diseases and disorders in general.

  • Users should be able to find more in depth material by Clicking on links from within the initial pages.
