Wilms Cancer Foundation

The Wilms Cancer Foundation of North America, is a charitable organization inspired by and in honour of,  9yr old cancer fighter William J. Hodgkinson (Wills).

45299246_1581010412114069_r.jpegWills is an average 9 yr old boy - loves sports, science, Lego and Star Wars. He idolizes David Beckham, follows the Vancouver Canucks, Whitecaps, Chelsea F.C. and the England Team!

However, Wills is fighting a dangerous battle. He was diagnosed with a stage 4/5 kidney cancer at  7yrs old known as 'Wilms'. Complaining of nothing more than a 'tummy ache', tests discovered that he had a massive tumour on his kidney and a further eight tumours in his lungs. He fought bravely and following multiple chemotherapy cycles, operations and radiation therapy, he was pronounced clear. Unfortunately, a year later Wills is now sadly in relapse and fighting once again. 

The Wilms Foundation of North America wants to ensure that something practical comes from Wills' difficult fight and that children like him never have to go through what he's facing.

45299246_1581013207479666_r.jpegInspired by Wills, the Foundations mission is to establish a national program of awareness, education, advocacy, early detection and treatment to tackle the spread of childhood cancer (most notably 'Wilms'). We also seek to support children, families and organizations as they tackle cancer, through initiatives such as our ‘Dream-Making’ program, in order to lighten the emotional and financial burden they face.
