Story

Dorothy,
Dorothy has been battling Stage 3 Wilm's tumor (or nephroblastoma) ever since her unexpected and shocking diagnosis in July 2014. She has already completed 4 rounds of Chemo and just recently had major surgery to remove her left kidney and tumor that had grown into her vena cava and heart. She is currently undergoing radiation and has 5 more rounds of chemo to complete. She also will receive daily injections of blood thinners for the next few months because she developed a blood clot in her vena cava in less than 48 hours after surgery. We hope that her body can manage to break it up on its own without having to do another risky surgery.
