My Father was diagnosed with kidney cancer during Christmas of last year. I don't remember if it was before or after because it was all painful and difficult and seemed to meld together. He had his kidney out, but unfortunately his cancer had metastized to his back in 2 spots, and his lungs in "numerous." He started Nexavar several weeks ago, and just stopped it for few days due to the blisters on his feet. Your website offers a wealth of info. I very quickly forwarded your site to my sister and mother. Unfortunately my Dad is not the type to read this kind of thing. But I want you to know that your info is truly helping other Warriors. Because of you my Dad is now on B-6 for his feet, and I bought him the slippers that one of your readers spoke of. Thank you. Good luck with your illness and thank you for instilling a little hope, and giving a little help.
