Jillian Hanes

I was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumor on July 7, 2011. I had surgery on July 11, 2011 at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Surgery was successful, as they removed the tumor along with the kidney.

I finished receiving chemotherapy treatments at the same hospital on November 23rd. I was planning to be finished in time for Christmas, but spots on my lungs are requiring a surgery/biopsy on the nodules on my lung on December 22, 2011. The nodules turned out to be pulmonary tissue, and not disease! Now we are on a check-up basis.

All of my scans have shown NED (no evidence of disease) and now we go back to Nationwide Children's Hospital every December for my next check-up.

We are now on a yearly check-up schedule and no longer have to receive CT scans!

We pray for continued health and good news! Thank you all and God Bless You!
