My Story

Evan will be celebrating his 7th year in remission March 2011! When Evan was 22 months old, he was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Evan had an unfavorable stage IV Wilms Tumor, with elements of Rhabdomyosarcoma. After having his left kidney removed, Evan received 8 months of inpatient chemotherapy and 14 radiation treatments. Evan began learning how to play the drums at age 5, and now can be seen on www.youtube.com performing all his songs. Search for evanspearls to view. Evan enjoys basketball, baseball, swimming, camping, reading and of course video games. He attends 4th grade @ McFadden School of Excellence in Murfreesboro. Evan is followed yearly by the REACH for Survivorship program at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Evan's right kidney was damaged from the chemotherapy treatments, therefore, Evan is seen twice a year at the Vanderbilt Children's Nephrology Clinic. Evan has a friendly and outgoing personality. He loves being around people, and performing his love for music. Evan's dream is to attend college at Vanderbilt University, and lead the drumline for the Vanderbilt Marching Band. Thank you for supporting St.Baldrick's Foundation- mom
