Patient Outreach, Engagement, Advocacy, and Support

The Kidney Cancer Association (KCA) is a charitable organization made up of patients, family members, physicians, researchers, and other health professionals. We fund, promote, and collaborate with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Urologic Association (AUA), and other institutions on research projects. They educate families and physicians, and serve as an advocate on behalf of patients at the state and federal levels.

The Kidney Cancer Association was founded in 1990 by a small group of patients, including Eugene P. Schonfeld, Ph.D., and medical doctors in Chicago, Illinois. It is a nonprofit charity incorporated in the State of Illinois. It has also been designated as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service code. Donations to the Association are tax deductible.

The Kidney Cancer Association is a member of, and is certified by, the National Health Council as an organization in full compliance with the Standards of Excellence for voluntary health agencies.

The Kidney Cancer Association is developing a global presence and is creating websites in several languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, French, Italian and other languages. New patient support groups are planned for the European Union, Asia and Australia in 2007.
