Increase in Life Expectancy: link to article
Thanks to advances in medical research, clinical guidelines for screening, diagnosis, and treatment have been developed which have contributed to extending VHL patient life expectancy by over 16 years! Our hope is that through continued research efforts, we will find ways of keeping tumors from forming, or at least keeping them small, and reduce the need for surgical intervention.
