Ways to Give


On behalf of patients affected with kidney cancer and their families, as well as UT Southwestern Medical Center faculty and staff, thank you for considering supporting the Kidney Cancer Program. Your support enables us to advance promising new research and treatments for patients.


Cancer doesn’t just affect a particular individual, but it touches everyone around. For the last few years, my wife and I have been supporting the Kidney Cancer Program by putting a face to cancer for the research team. We think of them as friends and extended family and support them for their dedication and hard work.

— Tony Towler, kidney cancer patient
