Hearing a diagnosis of Bladder Cancer is not only shocking and life-changing but the lack of medical information and varying degrees of care is overwhelming. We began our journey to help each other with support, knowledge and medical information.  As one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and high rates of recurrence it remains hard to understand why there is a lack of information and lack of research.  The Albany Chapter was formed out of the lack of support and information about the disease in the Capital Region.  A voice is needed for this disease — on behalf of all of those that have been diagnosed, those yet to be diagnosed, and the families who have lost loved ones to bladder cancer.   It is our mission to increase public awareness about bladder cancer, advance bladder cancer research, and provide educational and support services for the bladder cancer community in the Capital Region.
