Savannah: Wilms Tumor

Savannah, a Nemours patient with Wills tumor

Savannah was diagnosed on July 11, 2011 with Wilms tumor, a form of kidney cancer. She was just 2 years old. Her treatment included surgery to remove the tumor and her left kidney, radiation, as well as chemotherapy.

Even though one drug consistently made her vomit, she still remained a very happy child throughout her treatment.

Now, Savannah is 6 and cancer-free. She's in kindergarten, loves music and dancing, and enjoys riding miniature horses.
