Wilms tumor long term issues

My daughter was diagnosed at 4 months, she had a partial nephrectomy (pardon my misspelling i swear i purposely do NOT learn to spell these words!) anyway...her other kidney was a bit small so they couldn't take the whole kidney with the tumor out. She had radiation and chemo...and since this was 1989 more of both than kids get now. Anyway...fast forward and at 15 she gets bladder cancer! She got through both...total trouper that she is. Now, at 22 she has elevated protein in her urine. I have been trying to read up on it, it's not a HUGE amount of protein...but it's scary. I guess...my question is if there are other wilms tumor survivors who have had elevated protein in their urine.
