March 23, 2017



Debbie G. shares her adventure with a rare kidney tumor, and show us the importance of learning her options.

Debbie was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Doctors recommended removing her kidney. Before proceeding, Debbie asked questions, listened to her instincts, and worked with the doctors to learn what other options were appropriate in her case.

Experts at the National Institutes of Health have been studying kidney cancer for 30 years, working toward finding a cure for kidney cancer. In doing so they have learned that kidney cancer is not one but many diseases, with different cell types that behave differently and respond differently to treatments.

Join us to talk with Debbie about what discovered, and how important it was to do this careful research.
