I was just looking here at ACS CSN for other young cancer survivors. I was diagonosed Feb.13th 2003. This friday is my 1st anniversary and I couldn't be happier. I have a lot to live for and a whole new reason to try. I am looking to communicate with any one who has been through kidney cancer.

My father has to have his kidney removed. He had a growth show up in an xray. He started out with bladder cancer originally. I am wondering if he has kidney cancer or bladder cancer or both? That is great that you are at your 1st anniversary. We are hoping for the same for him. Keep up the faith!

Hi, I was told in Oct. 2001 that I had RCC and they removed my left kidney 3 weeks later. I go back now once a year for my check-up everything seems to be going good. But you have to keep faith. And do alot of praying. Your alot younger than me. I was 51 when they told me. So you have alot to live for. The same as I do. So take care and may God Bless you.

I am 40 years old and coming up on my 1st year anniversary of surgury. I would like to know how you are doing and feeling. I had a large tumor that they removed along with my left kidney. It would be nice to talk with someone in a similar situation.

I'm 33 years old and just had my right kidney removed for RCC. This is my 3rd primary cancer since I was 28. I'm looking to start a young survivor support group in Seattle - anyone interested, please email me at glennrockowitz@yahoo.com. Hang in there everyone!

Hi RR. I was also diagnoised with kidney cancer feb 13 of 2003. I had my left kidney removed and some colon and lympnodes. Mine has spread tho. I went through immuno therapy/chemo. Where I go in for a week at a time. I did 4 months of that and in Feb they put a stent in my right kidney because the lympnodes are sqeezing it and keeping it from emptying. I hope I do as well as all of you have in recoving. I'm in a holding pattern right now until May. That's my next scan and to find out what the next move/treatment will be.

Same experience, same kidney, just over a year before you. No further treatment needed for now, but lots and LOTS of follow up.
