Island woman urges people 'Be Clear on Cancer'

Tue, 16 Feb 2016


A cancer survivor from the Isle of Man is urging people to "Be Clear on Cancer" after having her kidney removed.

53-year-old Kim Mcciver was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2014 after suffering from what she thought was cystitis.

When it didn't clear she was sent for further tests and then to Liverpool where she had her kidney and both adrenal glands removed by keyhole surgery. 

Just under 17,500 people are diagnosed with bladder and kidney cancer in England each year - an awareness campaign launched today is highlighting the main symptom; blood in your urine.

It was something Kim had noticed - she's urging people not to ignore it or make excuses about getting help:
