The Radiation Cystitis Foundation focuses on raising awareness, promoting scientific advancement, and advocating on behalf of RC patients nationally. This group is a volunteer-run organization with a focus on radiation cystitis. We are currently a small organization limited resources. The Radiation Cystitis's current priority is to support - via small grants and donations - organizations that address Radiation Cystitis and similar unmet needs in urology. Historically we have provided funding support to public charities which support urology patients.
The Radiation Cystitis Foundation is one of two parts of the Bladder Health Foundation, which is a private foundation focused on unmet needs in urology. The Bladder Health Foundation also includes the Underactive Bladder Foundation. For additional information please see our Guidestar entry.
The Bladder Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization. If you would like to consider supporting our mission you are welcome to email us for more information. Our interests are twofold: first to support the development of new treatment and prevention options, and second to advocate for RC awareness.
