Over Two Years, Kidney Cancer Association Invests More Than $1-Million In Research Program Activities

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kidney Cancer Association, Urology Care Foundation, and Conquer Cancer Foundation welcome grant requests supported by donations from ShoeDazzle and celebrity Denise Richards.

The world's largest charity dedicated exclusively to the eradication of death and suffering from renal cancers, the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA), announces the availability of funds for research projects.

"We partner with the Conquer Cancer Foundation and Urology Care Foundation [formerly AUA Foundation] to make annual Young Investigator Awards because of the expertise resident in these organizations, because of the difference in scale—we knew that they would receive more and better-quality proposals—and because of the efficiency of the process, which relieves our small organization of the financial and logistic burden of reviewing proposals," says Bill Bro, KCA chief executive officer, a 24 year kidney cancer survivor. "We're very pleased with our collaboration. It's an extremely effective synergy."

KCA has sponsored more kidney cancer research projects than any organization of its size in the world. In its two most recent fiscal years, KCA invested a total of approximately $1,000,000 in research-related program activities.

More than 60,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with kidney cancer each year, and each year over 13,000 people lose their battle with this disease. Kidney cancer is the sixth most common cancer for men and the eighth most common cause of cancer for women.

Details concerning the application process for YIA grants may be found on the websites of the Conquer Cancer Foundation and the Urology Care Foundation. Information concerning prior grants awarded collaboratively by KCA and its research partners may be found here.

Currently, KCA is partnering with Hollywood star Denise Richards, whose mother died from kidney cancer in 2007, and ShoeDazzle to raise funds for research, education, and advocacy. 100% of sales from two ladies shoe designs (one created by Richards and the other by a teen who died from renal cancer) are donated by ShoeDazzle to KCA.

KCA was founded in 1990 by a small group of patients, including Eugene P. Schonfeld, Ph.D., and medical doctors in Chicago, Illinois. It is a nonprofit charity incorporated in the State of Illinois. It has also been designated as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service code. Donations to the Association are tax deductible.
