Living With Kidney Cancer Days

 Following the our successful Living With Kidney Cancer days so far in 2019, we still have three to go…

We are hosting nine Living With Kidney Cancer days around the UK in 2019. These days are designed to be relaxed, informal and offer you the opportunity to become more informed through presentations from health professionals on a variety of topics relevant to your condition. These will include surgery options, oncological treatments, dealing with side-effects as well as the opportunity to meet with, and share your experiences with, other patients and their loved ones.

Once confirmed and available you can view the agenda for a specific day, click the link below for the day you wish to attend. A PDF of the agenda (when available) will open when you click the corresponding link below your selected venue. You can then view and close or download the agenda to keep.

All Living With Kidney Cancer Days are free to attend, lunch and refreshments are provided and reasonable travel expenses may be available. Please contact us for more information before committing to any travel plans.
