Gold Ribbon Hero Ariadne S

“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Ari was 2 1/2 years old when she was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor. Her sister Daniella had a wart in her foot that was bugging her so her mom made an appointment with their pediatrician. It was Ari’s turn to get checked, and the doctor noticed something in her belly. She had an ultrasound made where they were able to see a large mass in her left kidney. She was immediately sent to Primary Children’s Hospital for further care, blood tests, and an MRI. The day after the diagnosed was given. Wilms Tumor stage II. A week later she had a 5 hour surgery to remove the tumor and the kidney itself along with 12 lymph nodes negative in cancer. After 6 months of chemo treatment on December 30th Ari was sent home cancer free!!” – Patricia J
