We started chemo three days later and his tumour and right kidney were removed five weeks later. Our precious baby boy now has the biggest fight of his life and we have no idea where we find the strength to support him through this, but we do. We have no choice. Thank you to our baby George who still manages to bring a smile to our faces in the darkest moment of our lives.
We were told we could ‘breathe a sigh of relief’ that the tumour was a Wilms. A sigh of relief? We know what the doctors meant - this type of tumour has a good success rate and is the most common renal tumour in children. However, there are only 80-85 diagnosed cases a year and anything short of 100% success is absolutely terrifying. Risk of relapse is very real with this type of tumour.
Please support us in raising funds to find a cure for Wilms tumours, and to find kinder treatments for our babies. Our Freddie takes all of his treatments in his stride and is an absolute hero, but adult medicines have come so far compared to those we give to children. This absolutely needs to change.
Thank you so much.
Heather and Danny
