July 28, 2014, George, then just barely 7 years old, was diagnosed with stage 3 Wilms' tumor (kidney cancer). When detected the tumor was too large to remove so George started chemo treatments at Primary Children's Hospital. After three months of chemo, the doctors decided it was time to remove the tumor. Once the tumor (including his left kidney) was removed George continued his chemo as well as 13 days of radiation treatment. On April 24, 2015, George finished treatment and RANG THE BELL!!!
We walk in hopes that one day soon no one will ever have to hear those terrible words "Your child has cancer".
