About Us

The Foundation for Renal Medullary Carcinoma Research was founded in 2020 by Alexander S. Wesley and a group of close friends. The RMCRF was started in memory of Ryse Williams, a close friend of Alexander who died in 2017 after complications from stage 4 Renal Medullary Carcinoma. The RMCRF's primary goal is to promote awareness for RMC and SCD and provide families and patients with easy to understand information on their disease.


Our Vision is a future where those diagnosed with rare cancers, especially RMC, have access to affordable and quality care. 

Our Mission is to create a worldwide organization that supports those diagnosed with RMC and other Sickle Cell Disease-related disorders.
