I recently joined a new organization called Action to Cure Kidney Cancer. They were founded in the begining of 2003 and have made strides legislatively. The target of this organization is research which will lead to treatments. As you may know, the National Cancer Institures annual budget is 1 billion dollars, but only 20 million dollars go to kidney cancer research. 36,000 cases a year are diagnosed and 12,500 people die each year. We need to work together to see a bigger picture of the pie.
