Joyce speaks with Anne Wilson, CEO of Kidney Health Australia (kidney.org.au), an organization dedicated to helping all Australians maintain good kidney health throughout their lifetimes.
While traditionally focused on kidney diseases that reduce kidney function and may lead to dialysis and transplant, several years ago the organization undertook also to support people with kidney cancer. It now works not only for awareness of issues that may degrade kidney function, it works too to raise awareness of the early signs of kidney cancer and connect people diagnosed with any of these issues find the help they need.
In addition to her work with Kidney Health Australia, Anne also serves with Joyce on the Leadership Team of the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC.org), an international network of patient support and advocacy organizations established with the mission of improving the quality of life of patients and their families living with kidney cancer. IKCC provides information, support and assistance to national and regional non-profit kidney cancer organizations. All organizations are welcome to participate.
