Why Do We Need to Raise Funds for Kidney Cancer Research?

About Us

After my husband Ralph was diagnosed with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer) in June 2014, we didn’t know what to do other than everything we could to keep him alive.  While receiving treatment at Johns Hopkins under Hans Hammers, MD, Phd, it became clear that Kidney Cancer was underfunded. In June 2015, we learned that Dr. Hammers had secured millions of dollars of new immunotherapy drugs through Bristol-Myers Squibb, however he lacked the necessary funds to administer his clinical trial for 25 advanced patients.

What Did We Do?

We turned to our friends, family and business associates and in just 3 short weeks, we raised over $300,000 to fund the RADVAX clinical trial.

In July 2016, we formed the KC Coalition to not only bring awareness to the lack of research funding but to raise much needed funds for our Kidney Cancer researchers around the country.
