Jo Jennings did a tandem skydive from 13,000 ft. free-falling for 45 seconds, for Kidney Cancer UK on Sunday 18th August 2013. (View photos here)
Whilst being treated for prostate cancer, Jo’s Dad was diagnosed with incurable Kidney Cancer 3 years ago. Fortunately, to date his current treatments have succeeded in preventing his cancer from spreading any further and he is managing to lead a relatively normal life. He has been brave and very positive. Jo has decided to do something to champion his fighting spirit and to help anyone who is battling kidney cancer.
jo jenningsTo help her achieve her goal please visit her JustGiving site to leave a donation or a quick note to support her.
We know that if you are a patient or a family member of someone who has been diagnosed with kidney cancer, one way to make life easier is read about someone in a similar position. Jo has found our patient and carer forum very supportive and informative.
The kidney cancer careline is a telephone helpline operated by our patient support team who can draw on their own experiences to support and encourage patients and their families during the difficult time following a diagnosis of kidney cancer. The careline provides the means for patients to make contact with someone who knows exactly how they feel; this understanding and empathy can provide a great deal of comfort during their cancer journey.
To talk to someone, you can contact our careline on 0330 111 2 333. Our friendly and helpful patient support team are happy to chat to you and offer advice based on their own experience of kidney cancer between 10 am and 4 pm, Monday to Friday, 10 am and 6 pm Wednesday and 4 pm – 6 pm at the weekend. Outside these hours, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as possible.
