INAUGURAL WELSH KIDNEY CANCER PATIENT DAY - 10TH OCTOBER

The James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer is pleased to announce the very first Welsh Kidney Cancer Patient Day, on Wednesday 10th of October at the Metropole Hotel, Llandridod Wells.

Chaired by Professor Wagstaff, this event promises to be both informative and interesting and will include presentations from some of the country’s leading kidney cancer specialists on the latest treatments for kidney cancer, kidney cancer surgery, the role of the clinical nurse specialist, dietary considerations for kidney cancer patients and patient support.

During the afternoon delegates will have the opportunity to engage with a panel of kidney cancer experts, patients and healthcare professionals in a Question and Answer session.

This is an ideal opportunity for kidney cancer patients and their families and carers to learn more about kidney cancer, to meet others with an interest in the disease, and to ask questions of the healthcare professionals and key opinion leaders working with kidney cancer patients.

This event follows on from a programme of very successful patient days run by the Fund in England, Wales and Scotland last year, which raised the profile of kidney cancer and increased awareness among patients and the public.

For further information and to register for the event please contact Jo Popham on 0779559658 or email jp@jameswhalefund.org.More information is available on www.jameswhalefund.org. This event is free for kidney cancer patients and their families and includes free admission to the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. Refreshments and lunch are provided and the Fund will also reimburse reasonable travel costs.
