Juliet Ibrahim, a successful actress and model in Ghana, West Africa, wanted to dedicate herself to a worthy cause. She chose kidney cancer primarily because of two of her aunts who suffer from kidney cancer. These aunts are dear to her, and she wanted to be able to help them and others like them by creating a voice that will be bigger than any of her movies.
In Ghana and most of the African nations there are not many good options for people with kidney cancer. She is determined to change that.

It's understandable that sexuality may not be the primary focus for many cancer patients, at least not right away. Sexuality is an incredibly personal topic, and each person's experiences, feelings, and expectations are unique. But at some point, whether because of sexual changes, relationship issues, or difficulties with fertility, patients realize the impact of cancer on their sexuality. By learning about how your sexuality is likely to change and getting suggestions for healing, you become a partner and advocate in your own care.
