Thanks for the information. I hope she was diagnosed before any spread and it was in just one kidney. Has she been staged? had surgery? started chemo? Poor little one, i hope you are able to access really good care for her.

What sort of cancer does she have? There are several different forms of renal cancer in kids. Chemo and radiation remain the best treatment, along with surgical removal of the affected kidney. The good news is it is a treatable cancer in children. I hope she recovers quickly. Her appetite will wax and wane during treatment and since she is so young, she may need supplementation thru an IV or NG tube for feeding during this phase. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
