My Story

Late Friday evening, April 21, 2006 our 4 1/2 year old daughter Grace began complaining of right hip and abdominal pain. The morning of Saturday, April 22, Grace's pediatrician sent us to the Medical Center of Plano emergency room. A few hours later, a CT scan discovered a mass on her right kidney. Grace was transported via ambulance with mom along and dad following to Children's Medical Center. Grace remained in Children's for seven days enduring many tests. Her pain was controlled by morphine. She was diagnosed with pediatric Wilms tumor which is a form of cancer. Grace's case is unique because there was blood involved with the tumor. To decrease the risk of rupture, she had chemotherapy for several weeks to shrink the tumor. The tumor and right kidney were removed on June 16, 2006. Surgery was followed by radiation and more chemotherapy. Her tiny body was asked to endure so very much: IV's, chest, xrays, CT scans, sonograms, multiple surgeries, blood transfusions, daily blood tests, echocardiograms, radiation, chemotherapy, etc. All this in addition to losing her hair. The taunts of a few children still haunt her to this day. Through it all, she was so very brave. Her big blue eyes hold too much wisdom for her young age. Her dad and I are so very proud of her. Grace relapsed at the age of 12 and fought like a LION for four years.  Treatment was so very hard.  My sweet girl wanted to LIVE but a cure was not to be.  My beautiful Grace gained her angel wings on June 1, 2018.
