  1. Hi – I’ll be coming to town for this – Im a patient with stage mRCC on IO therapy. Im 54 yrs old and Im tolerating the meds well so far. Im coming to town a couple days early and I was wondering if there any other visitors or participants who may be looking to meet up for a chat ?
    Thanks

  2. Just wanted to say I attended this event on Sat. Kudos to everyone involved in putting this together. It was outstanding! Every one of the speakers provided useful and informative information that was presented in a clear easy to understand fashion. Hope you will do this again and hopefully it will inspire other centers to do the same thing.
    Rob so sorry I didn’t see your comment until now. Are you on any of the patient support sites like Smart Patients http://www.smartpatients. com (sign up for the kidney cancer group) or one of the KcCure groups? https://kccure.org/kidney-cancer-patient-support-communities/ Think you will find some great connections there. Wishing you well.
