New Survivor Story


In 2007 I was in an airplane accident that saved my life. After being life flighted, they did a CT of the abdomen which showed a 13cm mass on my kidney. Two months later, I had my nephrectomy. Then I started a support group for Renal Cancer patients. And now I am chairman of my community's Relay For Life. I am determined that we will beat cancer!
