Dear <<First Name>>:
The IKCC is dedicated to global collaboration to raise awareness, promote research and empower organisations to support those affected by kidney cancer.

We are pleased to report to you our achievements in 2013, and our plans for 2014 and beyond. We hope that you will be one of the key players in continuing and building upon what we have done to date.
Co-chairs Dr. Rachel Giles of the Netherlands and Deb Maskens from Canada head a Leadership Team and Advisory Council totaling 18 people from six continents, dedicated to helping organisations like yours world-wide. Meet your Leadership Team.
Our Mission
We are an independent patient-centered, democratic network of patient support and advocacy organisations from around the world. The organisation was born from a very strong desire among various national patient groups to network, cooperate and share experiences.  Learn more at
