The Honorable Jeff Pyle,
Pyle’s Resolution Recognizes August 2010 as Kidney Cancer Awareness Month

The State House today unanimously adopted House Resolution 805, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Pyle (R-Armstrong/Indiana), which designates August 2010 as Kidney Cancer Awareness Month in Pennsylvania. 

“This issue is near and dear to my heart,” Pyle said.  “Any cancer diagnosis strikes a serious blow to one’s foundation, but through research, education and treatment, many can survive this horrible disease.  Early detection is the most important step to survival.” 

A kidney cancer survivor himself, Pyle understands the fear and confusion often felt by patients and their families.  Pyle was first diagnosed in late 2004, went on to have surgery and made a full recovery.  He joins the more than 100,000 survivors living throughout the United States. 

He noted that each year, 36,000 people in the country are diagnosed with kidney cancer, which occurs twice as often in men than in women.  In the past year, breakthroughs in research have given renewed hope to patients who previously had few treatment options. 

“I am thankful that I was given a second chance at life after fighting this illness,” Pyle said.  “I cannot stress the importance of early detection and prompt treatment.  I applaud our medical professionals for their dedication to finding proven treatments to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.”
