Collaborating with the cancer patient community

Our partnerships with patient organizations enable us to better understand the reality of living with different cancer types, so that we can focus our efforts on delivering impactful support programs and educational materials tailored to the needs of those living with them.


One example of this is our collaboration with the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) on Together for Kidney Cancer; a global disease awareness initiative co-created with the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) to empower people with kidney cancer to take more active roles in their treatment and care decisions.
