It is the world’s first international charity dedicated specifically to the eradication of death and suffering from renal cancers. It is also by far the largest kidney cancer charity, with members in more than 100 countries. They fund, promote, and collaborate with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Urological Association (AUA), and other institutions on research projects. They also educate families and physicians, and serve as an advocate on behalf of patients at the state and federal levels in the United States and globally.
