Manchester Patient Day – Feedback

A warm thank you to all who attended the Kidney Cancer Patient Day in Manchester yesterday

It was lovely to meet so many patients – some whom we have emailed and spoken to on the phone many many times but who we have never met, and those new patients who we met for the first time.

The day was a tremendous success with a fantastic attendance, and the feedback from patients and carers was very very positive.
It was wonderful to receive the comments about how informative the presentations were, how nice it was to speak to other patients and carers, and how comforting it is to know that you are not alone – to quote just a few!!!

I must say a big thank you to all the speakers, for the very helpful and interesting talks they all gave. I know from the patients and carers I did manage to speak to how useful these talks were and how much they gained just from attending.

A thank you must also go to the James Whale Fund and especially to Sharon for organising the whole day that we know is so important to patients. It is no easy task putting the day together, bringing speakers on board to give up their time for the day, organising the venue and of course ensuring patients and carers know about it. Without the support of the James Whale Fund this day would not be possible, so a huge thank you to all.

I mustn’t forget a very heartfelt thank you to Professor Hawkins and all his team for their huge support and backing for running this day for kidney cancer patients.
If you are reading this forum for the first time following the patient day a very warm welcome to you.
Have a look through, see the topics discussed, join up, don’t be afraid to start a new discussion if you have questions to ask. You will see we have a very helpful community of Kidney Cancer patients and carers who are all more than willing to share their experiences for the benefit of others.

We really hope you enjoyed the day and find our forum helpful.
If you have any questions at all about the forum or any questions left over from the patient day itself then please do not hesitate to contact either Rose or myself on:

Or you can call us via the CareLine on: 0330 111 2 333
