Kidney Cancer – Stories of Hope
Mark Walter is 66 years old and lives in Amanzimtoti, South Africa with his wife, Odette, the most important person in his journey. The Walters have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. When facing a diagnosis of cancer, Mark recommends that a strong faith, strong partner, and a strong family unit are needed, as well as a positive attitude.
Mark’s journey started on 9th February 2011; whilst undergoing a routine check-up his urologist felt a lump in his right kidney. A CT scan found a 5.2 cm dense mass in his right kidney, the density indicating malignancy. Mark was diagnosed with kidney cancer and was scheduled to have his kidney removed.
