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.
The Juliet Ibrahim Foundation (JIF) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization focused on creating awareness about kdieny cancer and providing cost effective treatment for individuals suffering from kidney related diseases. Kidney cancer is preventable and curable, and JIF aims to help those in need of treatment to have access to service in Africa. JIF offers education, treatment and other social support.
The goal is to create a world without kidney cancer. Their primary near-term objective is to help low income individuals suffering from kidney diseases who cannot afford treatment.
One way in which they are raising awarness is through her video, http://youtu.be/MrP8p4OmtLE

Robin Martinez, one of the listowners (administrators) for KIDNEY-ONC, CHROMOPHOBE-RCC, and PAPILLARY-RCC, three of over 100 mailing lists provided by the Association of Cancer Online Resources (ACOR). Subscribers to our mailing lists communicate via email sent simultaneously to all members. Patients, survivors, caregivers, and professionals discuss current treatments and how to choose among them, side effects, clinical trials, where to find experienced doctors, problems of living with a long-term disease, emotional support, and much more.
In 2011 KIDNEY-ONC won grand prize for an outstanding example of use of mailing list technology from L-Soft, the company which first developed this technology 27years ago. Our memers exemplify the e-patient movement in which patients become engaged, empowered, and well-equipped partners in their own health care.
Robin's late husband was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 1988 and died from it in 1998. During her own search for information in 1997, she became one of the administrators of the KIDNEY-ONC mailing list and later its offshoots for papillary and chromophobe RCC.
She has also served as a consumer reviewer for kidney cancer grant applications to the Department of Defense. She is affiliated with Action to Cure Kidney Cancer and the International Kidney Cancer Coalition. She lives in Denver, Colorado, with her adult son.
Robin will share information about ACOR's latest initiative, SmartPatient

In 2000, Dr. Silver was diagnosed with lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. Rather than undergo traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments, he treated his condition with alternative modalities such as detoxification, vitamins, hormones and dietary changes. He is now cancer-free.
Combining his unique natural approach with his advanced medical training, Dr. Silver promotes overall health and strives to keep patients out of the hospital and feeling their best. He believes that disease prevention is the key to a long-term health and offers patients various techniques to relieve symptoms, reverse the effects of serious conditions, and help turn back the hands of time.

Mike and Joyce speak with Berit Eberhardt, Division head for Kidney Cancer at the House of Life (Das Lebenshaus) in Germany.
Das Lebenshaus is a non-profit organization providing information and support for those affected by rare solid tumors: gastro-intestinal stromal tumors (GIST), Sarcoma, and Kidney Cancer.
Berit studied economics and worked as a project manager in a global information technology company. Her life changed when her boyfriend was diagnosed with kidney cancer. As a caregiver, Berit got in touch with Das Lebenshaus and read and learned a lot about the disease and the various possible treatments. Unfortunately, her boyfriend died just one year after his diagnosis, at the age of 39.
Half a year after his death she began a patient support group in Berlin. A few months later she became the manager of Kidney Cancer at Das Lebenshaus. She has broadened her commitment to Kidney Cancer and is an active participant in global events such as the International Kidney Cancer Coalition and the International events sponsored by the Kidney Cancer Association.
