World Kidney Cancer Day
17 June 2021
Thank you to everyone who supported our World Kidney Cancer Day campaign. On 17th June 2021 IKCC affiliate organisations from around the world came together to raise awareness of how important it is ‘to talk about how we’re feeling’. The campaign was a tremendous success and we look forward to sharing the global campaign report.
