“As a urologic oncologist with a particular interest

in kidney cancer, I treat many survivors at various

stages of disease and have felt that we need a better

understanding of the role of physical activity in

cancer and its relationship to health outcomes,

particularly in managing kidney cancer. As Chair

of the Kidney Cancer Research Network of

Canada (KCRNC), I have encouraged work in this

very interesting and potentially useful aspect of a

previously underappreciated approach to improving

the lives of our patients. This Guidebook will

become a valuable resource for kidney cancer

survivors and hopefully, will stimulate further

studies and research.”
