This past Christmas, our worst nightmare came true when doctors discovered a Wilm's tumor in Cole's kidney during one of his regular 3-month checkups. Although Wilms tumors are cancerous, they are very treatable. The doctor's believe Cole has 4 present in his kidney.
Cole's team at Texas Childrens decided to do chemo in order to shrink the tumors before removing. Cole got a port put in and started treatment within 2 weeks of diagnosis. He will receive chemo weekly for 22 weeks and they will do another CT scan at 6 weeks. At that time, they will determine if it’s small enough to remove through surgery. The goal is to preserve as much kidney as possible as Cole is still at risk for tumor development in the other kidney.
We ask for your prayers for protection and healing for Cole. We ask for prayer for Sarah and Zach as they faithfully push forward the next 6 months. We also ask for positivity and happiness around Cole, which is the easiest part because he is a child bursting with happiness each day.
If you feel called to contribute to Cole's medical expenses, this is the best way to do so.
