Abstract: 
This study is being conducted to establish awareness of Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC), Renal Cancer. For the purposes of this study the Researcher will use a Qualitative Autobiography Case Study approach to educate individuals on RCC and to advocate RCC, and support based on a lived-experience; the Researchers’ own experience. In the current era, because of the prevalence of sonography, computed tomography (CTs), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs); RCC usually can be detected in the early stages (Kuang-Shun, Hsin-Chih, & ChingChia, 2013). The Researcher’s intent is to educate individuals, by affording them with a description of what RCC is, its symptoms (if any), early detection information, possible medical plan(s) of action, support resources, and recovery
