Bethany's wilms warriors


Angelina Eileen Vidler was diagnosed with stage 4 favourable Wilms tumour on 23 July 2006 when she was 3 and a half.


In July 2012, Kara was diagnosed with stage V Wilms tumour to both kidneys and her lungs. She had no symptoms other than a little bit of a tummy, which her mum was told is common in children. When her mum noticed a lump on one side of her tummy she took her to A and E and it was then that they were told the devastating news. She was diagnosed with stage V Wilms (bilateral).


Ethan age 4 3/4 was diagnosed with Wilms tumour on the 20th March 2013. When Ethan was 3 1/2 his belly would distend/swell frequently but then return to normal. The doctors thought that it was just his immature tummy muscles not holding his stomach contents in. His mother didn’t agree with this and he was diagnosed with stage II favourable histology Wilms tumour.


Emily is a Wilms survivor. Prior to diagnosis Emily’s symptoms included numerous temperatures of more than 38.0 degrees over a period of around a year. She also frequently had diarrhoea and was failing to thrive. She was anaemic and had very raised platelets, but her gastroenterologist put this down to allergies. She was diagnosed in A&E in March 2008.


On the 17th of February 2012 Logan was diagnosed with a tumour 10cm in diameter in his left kidney, a Wilms tumour. This devastated his family and threw them into a whirlwind. Logan had 5 weeks of chemotherapy with vincristine, and then underwent surgery to remove his left kidney.
