RCC 4th Stage

Joined: Jan 2005

My father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney cancer that spread to his bones and one lung. He has been batteling it for over a year now. If anyone has any new knowledge of clinical trials going on that would great. We have been working with Sloan-Kettering and Johns-Hopkins. Also if there are any Stage 4 survivors out there, please any words of advice and encouragement would be helpful.

Hey Teesa,

You couldn't be in better hands than by working with Sloan and Hopkins. Sloan is #1 in the world for cancer treatment as a whole, and Hopkins is #1 in several areas of cancer research. A good friend of mine is an oncology fellow there. Just don't be afraid to ask them lots of questions.

How do you find out what places are the best -- whose treatment success rates are the highest -- for a particular kind of cancer? I too am interested in kidney cancer in particular.
