In 2017 thus far, there have been an estimated 63,990 new cases of kidney and renal pelvis cancer in the United States1. And while the 5-year relative survival rate continues to increase, there is still much research to be done. The Fund supports a specialized research program at the NIH to identify new treatment options, as well as explore existing ones. You can learn more about the Fund, here.
