Kure It's Story

The idea to establish Kure It came after Barry Hoeven was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 1998 while on a family vacation. Over the past 17 years, Barry and his family have been battling this disease on two fronts, personally, and by establishing Kure It to fund research. While Barry battles kidney cancer himself, he is continually focused on his goal for Kure It - to grant $1 million for research each year.
