STATEMENT – 2 December 2015

James Whale Fund and Kidney Cancer UK merge

We are very excited to announce the merger of Kidney Cancer UK into the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer on December 1, 2015. This merger will, in the near future, see the name ‘Kidney Cancer UK’ live on.
We welcome you if you have clicked through from the Kidney Cancer UK website and hope you will continue to support Kidney Cancer UK and James Whale Fund in the fight against kidney cancer across the UK.
This merger came through identifying the increased overlap in the services, objectives and messages we both provide to the kidney cancer community and the improved benefits a merger would provide.
We know that by becoming one we are stronger and better placed to take the fight, head on, to kidney cancer and offer improved support to patients, carers and their families, and fund essential research that will help extend, save and improve the quality of lives of kidney cancer patients across the United Kingdom.

Thank you.
Nick Turkentine
CEO James Whale Fund & Kidney Cancer UK.
