Meet Anthony James (AJ) born February 25th, 2016. AJ is the youngest of four children and loves to spend much of his time playing with his older siblings. He is one of the happiest kids you will come across and his absolute favorite activity to do in the world is pretend to cook food. He loves to eat and do whatever his older brothers and sister are doing.
On January 16th, AJ went to the doctor after having abdominal pain and a fever for three days. After several tests and scans, doctors came back with life-changing news....…Bi-lateral Wilms tumors. Wilms tumors are the most common type of kidney cancer found in children. Bilateral Wilms tumors are much more rare and found in only 4% of those cases making treatment much more difficult. AJ immediately started chemotherapy in an effort to shrink the tumors on his kidneys. He will be receiving these chemotherapy treatments for 6 weeks. After the 6 weeks, AJ's doctor's will re-scan AJ in an effort to see the progress that has been made with these tumors. Depending on the progress, there is a chance that AJ will need to undergo another round of chemotherapy as well as surgery to attempt to save his kidneys. Even with these treatments and diagnosis, AJ is still one of the happiest children around. He still loves playing with his siblings and his toys and still has that beautiful smile that lights up a room. AJ is fighting a battle that no child should have to fight. His bravery and courage is obvious to all those that meet him. We are looking to raise money in an effort to help AJ and his family through this difficult time. Any amount helps and will go directly to the family. Let's help AJ and his family get through this difficult time and get AJ back to a childhood free of cancer. AJ's father, Jay Wisniewski, is an Engineer with the Fullerton Fire Department and all Fullerton Firefighters will be wearing shirts in support of AJ while on duty. All funds raised will be given directly to the Jay and the Wisniewski family to aid in this difficult time.
THE FULLERTON FIREFIGHTER'S ASSOCIATION IS WITH YOU AJ!!!!
