Susan from Alberta, Canada, was diagnosed with stage 1 kidney cancer 12 years ago. In 2002, she lost her father and aunt to colon cancer. That difficult year didn’t prepare her for her own journey four years later.
Five years ago, Dawnia, who lives in Texas, was diagnosed with stage II kidney cancer at age 50. During a routine visit at her gynecologist’s office, the nurse practitioner was alarmed when she learned that Dawnia’s mother was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer.
