Mike Lawing and Andy Derr have been living with kidney cancer for years.  Both of them have learned not to knuckle under to a difficult diagnosis, but to challenge themselves to live WITH it, maintain their quality of life, and keep the nastiest effects of cancer at bay.

It's not easy.  But today there are better tools for challenging kidney cancer than ever before.  Working closely with their doctors, they have discovered strategies -- medical, mental, and spiritual -- that have helped them keep their heads high and their spirits strong and at the same time keeping cancer in the background of their lives.

Mike, Andy, and Joyce all attended the Kidney Cancer Symposium sponsored by the Kidney Cancer association in October 2014, and prepared a report in patient-approachable language to share with other patients and their families the amazing progress reported at the symposium.  Mike did the bulk of the work -- the concept, the layout, and pictures, the editing -- and Andy and Joyce contributed articles.
