Hi all, I am a cancer survivor myself but last year found out a good friend got kidney cancer. It has spread to his back (L3 & T10 disks) and his ribs are spotted all over. It has not spread to any vital organs, just the bones. Does anyone know of any metastisized kidney cancer survivor's that I could get him to talk to or email. Just for some strength and hope? I am a breast cancer survivor and had lots of help, he has no one to talk to that had kidney cancer. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am looking for advise on metastatic renal cell cancer myself. Mine has now formed nodules on my lungs. If you get any responses as to where to go for treatment...let me know.

From my research, the Cleveland Clinic seems to be the epi-center for kidney cancer treatment. They have an 800 number listed & their website is http://cms.clevelandclinic.org/urology/. There's even a video you can watch that is very informative. Try to stay strong & positive. Take care.
