    My daughter had a large cancerous tumor in one of her kidneys at 6 weeks old. Such a scary time, but she had surgery to remove the kidney and didn’t end up needing chemo since the cancer was only local to the kidney. It was NOT a Wilms tumor described here in this article, it was a very rare tumor called Celluar Mesoblastic Nephroma. They got our permission to send tissue from the tumor to be studied since they are so rare.

    We are so lucky to have her with us, she is a vibrant and extremely active 2 1/2 year old!

    Although I appreciate you trying to educate with this article, I find it extremely insensitive and not at all inclusive or accurate.
