 Kidney Cancer Patient Day, Manchester 15 June 2011

Post event comments:-

Professor Robert Hawkins, Cancer Research UK Professor and Director of Medical Oncology at the University of Manchester and the Christie Hospital NHS Trust, chaired the day attended by over 70 patients

A warm thank you to all who attended the Kidney Cancer Patient Day in Manchester last Wednesday, 15th June.

The day was a tremendous success with a fantastic attendance and the feedback from patients and carers was very positive. It was lovely to meet so many patients and their families or carers.

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!

A big thank you to all the speakers, especially Professor Robert Hawkins and his team, for the very helpful and interesting talks they gave. Feedback from patients and carers was that they found the talks very useful and they gained a lot from attending the meeting.

These patient days are so important to patients and without the support of the team at the James Whale Fund this day would not have been possible.

The James Whale Fund will be organising their next patient day on Wednesday 5th October in Scotland (venue to be announced), so please keep this date in your diary!

If you have any questions left over from patient day or would like to find out more about the work that we do, then please do not hesitate to contact the patient support team on:
