Message

Archie was diagnosed with a stage 3 Wilm's Tumor with favorable histology on Aug. 14, 2016 at just seven months old. He was operated on less than 48 hours later at Golisano Children's Hospital in Syracuse. He endured major complications during an 11-hour surgery to remove the tumor and his kidney. After many days in the ICU and on the oncology floor, Archie regained his strength and energy and returned home with his family in Syracuse. He completed radiation in early September 2016 and completed a 25-week course of chemotherapy at the end of February 2017. Scans at the end of March all came back clean and he had his port removed in early April. He will continue to have scans every three months for the next two years but we are hopeful the worst is behind us. 

Archie is a super happy, energetic little guy who is making tracks to be the class clown of any and all situations. Hobbies include eating, waving, playing, eating, clapping, dancing and eating some more. We are hopeful for his bright and healthy future!

He and his family (Mom Emily, Dad Chris and Big Sister Violet) have been supported by "Archie's Orange Army," an extremely supportive team of family and friends that stretches from coast to coast.
