The 'My Kidney Cancer, My Health' handbook
The 'My Kidney Cancer, My Health' handbook is designed for people diagnosed with advanced kidney cancer and their carers and focuses on helping you to understand advanced kidney cancer and its treatments.
This handbook provides information about how you can take control – how to look after yourself physically and emotionally.

The handbook also lists many useful resources that can help you through your journey with advanced kidney cancer.
