Your Health Care Team


Engaging your personal advanced kidney cancer support team

Your journey with advanced kidney cancer is not one you are coping with alone. Your family and friends can be there for you to help you with daily tasks, as well as talking to your doctor and helping you take your medication. Finding support from your caregivers, family, and friends can help them be closer to you, knowing that they have an important role in caring for your health and well being. You can also turn to support groups in order to connect with other people who have been affected by kidney cancer.


Here are some ways your family and friends may be able to help. They can:

  • Go with you to see your health care provider, take notes, and ask questions for you
  • Be there to listen when you need to talk
  • Help you with everyday tasks

You are not alone in your fight against kidney cancer

As you continue along your advanced kidney cancer treatment journey, keep in mind that having cancer does not change the person that you are, and it does not define you, either. Talk to your health care team and learn as much as you can. Do not be afraid to ask for help from your health care providers, friends, and support team whenever you feel you need it. Most importantly, always remember that you are not alone.
