ANNUAL CAMPAIGN FOR KIDNEY CANCER RESEARCH
Today, we launch a new fundraising goal of $160,000 for more important kidney cancer research that will begin in the new year into improved treatment options and the search for a cure.
It’s a lofty goal, but we are excited to let you know that every dollar you contribute, up to the first $80,000, will be matched – turning your dollar into two dollars.
