The annual Kidney Cancer Symposium was held this year in Miami, Florida. It was chaired by Dr. Toni Choueiri of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute in Boston, and contained a wealth of information for physicians, both urologists and oncologists dealing with kidney cancer.
This year for the first time in many years more patients and patient advocates were included in the mix. In the past Joyce has been one of 4-5 patients invited to help report the meeting, under the general editorship of Mike Lawing. This year, in part to celebrate the 25th anniversary oCaleb f the founding of KCA by a kidney cancer patient, more patients were invited to attend, including two from outside the United States: Caleb from Nigeria and Juanita Ruiz from Peru.
Billy Foster, a long-time KCA supporter and jazz musician, was on hand to provide wonderful music for the reception. He has given us permission to broadcast an interview he recorded with Caleb Egwuenu, founder and president of Stand Up to Cancer Naija, http://www.su2c9ja.org In Nigeria many people still believe that cancer is "juju" or some harmful magical power inflicted by someone else, or as a result of something you did wrong. The biggest challenge to managing any cancer is that diagnoses are usually after the cancer is already advanced to a late stage. For Nigeria as for most developing countries, the management of late stage cancer is beyond the skills and budgets of the health care systems. Their only hope of managing cancer is to find it at early stages.

“To inspire the lost with the hope of Christ; to equip America with knowledge of the truth, greater than the evils of the age; to embrace the role of “Watchmen,” that we might sound an alarm for all who will listen.”
Truth…what is it?
We know that ultimate Truth is found in the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We know that we’ve been commissioned as followers of Jesus to spread His truth, by reaching out to the lost…all of them.
Throughout history many Christians have grown frustrated, discouraged and at times, even fearful of the difficulties involved in outreach to Muslims…but that unease must be overcome, because –
We know that ultimately, Muslims themselves are the first casualties of Islam.
