Bryan Lewis, president, Kidney Cancer Action Network, met with Congresswoman Nita Lowey at her White Plains District Office on Aug. 30, 2018. The purpose of the meeting was to both thank Congresswoman Lowey for her instrumental support in helping to secure $15 million annually in research funding for kidney cancer and review the resulting impact.
This past year, an inaugural $10 million program was launched that has awarded 22 meritorious research applicants with crucial funding for this disease. The research community has been reinvigorated and this infusion of research dollars has motivated and drawn a new wave of young researchers to the field. This, in turn, has created a renewed sense of hope for a cure in the patient community throughout Westchester County and beyond.
