“Avery is a 5 year old Gold Ribbon Hero as she has faced cancer twice in her short life. She was diagnosed with Stage 2 Wilms tumor in 2012, and Stage 3 recurrent Wilms in January 2014. She has fought 5 surgeries, 10 fragments of radiation, multile transfusions, 6 months of chemo in 2012 and 7 months in 2014. She has remained incredibly strong, despite all the pain and challenges during this time. She is a true fighter and one that exemplifies strength, courage, and positivity. She has been an inspiration to many…Avery…is our hero!!” – Kari C.
