Kidney Cancer ScotlandRun For Kidney Cancer Scotland
Kidney Cancer Scotland is the Scotland’s leading specialist kidney cancer charity. We seek to reduce the harm caused by kidney cancer by increasing knowledge and awareness, providing patient information and by supporting research into the causes, prevention and treatment of the disease
We depend primarily on voluntary donations and have published a definitive guide to kidney cancer, set up a Patient Support Network and Careline, established online renal nurse training and research programmes and campaigned for access to life extending drugs for NHS kidney cancer patients and most recently introduced a telephone counselling service. Our services are free to patients and their loved ones, therefore we rely heavily on fundraising as we don't recieve any government funding.
