    I am very sad to hear about the passing of Dr. Kapoor. He saved my live when I had kidney cancer 10 years ago. Ever since then, I have seen and talked with him once a year for follow ups. He was such a kind and compassionate person whilst being top league scientist in his field. I do remember his reaction, when I had enhanced imagery of my CT scans to even better visualize the lesion on one of my kidneys, because I am a professional in this field. He was just amazed and used this printout for the later surgery. I felt immensly privileged to have had the absolut best surgeon available in Canada, likely the world. My condolences reach out to his family and friends. I will never forget you, rest in piece Dr. Kapoor.

    Last night I attended the most beautiful, most heartbreaking service for our friend, Dr Anil Kapoor. Hundreds and hundred of people sharing in this profound loss to our kidney cancer community — and many more across Canada who could not be there in person.

    If you are reading this, and if you are able, please consider a memorial donation so that in time there might be a fitting tribute — a research award, a great physician award, or something… when the time is right.

    Rest in peace Anil. And Thank You.

    Dr. Anil Kapoor (Anil as he liked to be called) will be missed by many people in the kidney cancer family. His heart and soul came through in his every action on behalf of patients and their families. The best we can do is to his contribute to the work he cared so much about “Finding better ways to treat kidney cancer”.

    Sometimes we meet a person who leaves a profound footprint on your life. As a former patient, I had just 4 meetings with Anil. It did not take long to see what a kind and compassionate physician he was. He performed a very difficult partial nephrectomy on a benign tumor in Feb 2020. I am eternally grateful for Dr. Anil’s care and extraordinary competence. He was a brilliant surgeon one could easily befriend. My sincere condolences to his close friends, family and colleagues. His passing is a tremendous loss to the medical community but his life’s achievements, leave a remarkable legacy and many grateful patients who will never forget him. Rest in peace good doctor.
