Hi. I am a 29 yr old currently going thru treatment for Wilm's Tumor. Until my diagnosis six months ago I knew nothing about Wilms but have to come to know that this is primarily only found in young children. I was wondering if there was anyone else that has had Wilms as an adult?

I've only talked to two other people with adult wilms. I am 29 and diagnosed with stage III this past Nov. To complicate matters I was 31 weeks pregnant. The decision was made that surgery to remove left kidney/ and the tumor was needed asap. They waited two weeks for the babies sake and then I had my son, then a week later surgery. A week and a half after surgery I started radiation and chemo. My son spent 6 weeks in the neo natal unit but is perfectly healthy now. My last chemo treatment was June 20 this year- so far everything looks good. For the first year I will have quarterly testing. I would love to hear more about your experience and how your doing now. Sorry to hear yours came back--hopefully all is well.
