On September 19 my daughter and I will do genetic testing for Kidney cancer. I was diagnosed July 2007 renal clear cell carcinoma and had a right nephrectomy. My daughter was diagnosed with a tumor, "possibly renal cell carcinoma." She had a partial nephrectomy June 2008. Tumor was renal clear cell carcinoma. Her oncologist is doing our genetic testing. This is exciting to me as it gives me an opportunity to do something "good" with cancer. Perhaps this will help someone else prevent full nephrectomy that I had. A friend of mine has a book entitled "Don't Waste Your Cancer." I am trying not to!
