Kidney Cancer Calls on Chicago Producers for CMS

  Sunday, March 1st, 2009

The Kidney Cancer Association set out to redesign their website with the help of Chicago Producers Web Solutions Team.  Kidney Cancer’s CEO Bill Bro said “we need a site that can be accessed in office using a CMS (Content Management System); with an updated, cleaner and easier to use design”.  With years of experience of installing, configuring and customizing Content Management Systems, Chicago Producers chose Joomla! as the new platform for KidneyCancer.org.  Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enabled Chicago Producers to accommodate Kidney Cancer’s need for ease-of-use and extensibility.

KidneyCancer.org contains information from scientists and physicians who are experts in understanding and treating kidney cancer. The goal is to help you beat cancer by making you smarter.  How is this possible? Your ability to think, to use information, and to make choices about treatment can help bend the odds in your favor. Visiting kidneycancer.org is the first step.  The site is intended primarily as a resource for patients and medical professionals and the information presented is periodically reviewed by the Association’s medical and scientific advisors.
