Our Mission

With heavy hearts, we share that Dr. Christopher G. Wood, chair of the KCA’s Board of Directors, died on November 3. Dr. Wood was a gifted urologic surgeon at MD Anderson Cancer Center who championed the kidney cancer community at every opportunity. We will miss him terribly and send our love to his wife Colleen, and children Sarah & Chris.

In his honor, the Kidney Cancer Association plans to establish an award to advance kidney cancer research and to keep the work and mission of Dr. Wood alive in memory. Our goal is to raise $2 million the fund this award. Please consider coming together in support of this goal by making a donation using the green button above.
