6-year-old Rowan needs our help battling Wilms (also known as a Nephroblastoma) -- a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children.
Rowan (who will be 7 in September!) was first diagnosed 2 years ago. She battled the disease courageously with the dedicated support of her family, and friends like us. However, Wilms has returned.
We need to help this family dedicate themselves to Rowan's care, as well as that of her two brothers, as they move through this frightening ordeal. WE NEED TO DO ALL WE CAN TO SUPPORT ROWAN, SO SHE CAN WIN THIS BATTLE PERMANANTLY!!!
Rowan's family and her loved ones are facing the challenge of being able to take time off of work in order to be with her to support an intensive course of a 6-7 month treatment plan with week long patient admits, weeks at home recovering, with radiation smattered in between. Rowan will have little time to go to school this year, so the family will need a tutor; on top of maintaining home, bills, food, and care for Rowan and her brothers. All of this in addition to covering the medical bills that will pour in.
This is REAL and we need to get involved TODAY and remain involved TOMORROW!
