Toni Choueiri: Major Victory for kidney cancer research Funding! 50 million Dollars Awarded!

Toni Choueiri, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology at the Dana–Farber Cancer Institute, shared KidneyCAN’s post on X/Twitter and added:

“YES YES YES!!

Major Victory for kidney cancer research funding!

50 million Dollars Awarded!”

Quoting KidneyCAN’s post:

“Many eyes are watching NCAA march madness, but our eyes have been glued to Capitol Hill. We are THRILLED to announce:

Victory for kidney cancer research funding!

The House and Senate have officially approved $50 million specifically for kidney cancer research in FY24, a testament to the power of our collective voice.

This dedicated funding is heading to President Biden’s desk, thanks to the tireless advocacy of patients, caregivers, medical professionals, and researchers in the KidneyCAN and partner community.

Your commitment — hundreds of meetings and thousands of hours of grassroots organization —has shone through. From the conference rooms to Capitol Hill, our message was heard: research saves lives.

Together, we’re not just advocating for change; we’re making it happen.

THANK YOU to our advocates! THANK YOU to our partners at Andy Derr Foundation, Chris CJ Johnson Foundation, Joey’s Wings Foundation, Judy Nicholson Kidney Cancer Foundation , National Kidney Foundation, Smart Patients, and the VHL Alliance.

We are accelerating cures.”
