Steve Dunn died on August 19, 2005 from complications of bacterial meningitis. He was a Stage IV (terminal) kidney cancer patient who had been completely cured 15 years earlier, and lived those 15 years cancer-free, active, and healthy. In 1989, after his doctors said his cancer could not be treated, Steve found a clinical trial through his own research. Later he decided to share what he had learned, primarily through this website and also as an ACOR mailing listowner, speaker, and FDA patient advocate for Kidney Cancer clinical trials. Steve's own story about his cancer (under "Inspirational Patient Stories") tells it better than any of us can. His dedication and determination has helped thousands of patients and caregivers, inspiring many of them to help others. Cancerguide will go on as a lasting tribute to him. It will always be Steve Dunn's Cancerguide.
