Hi! I'm new here and new to this idea of reaching out to other cancer survivors, so I was hoping to connect with someone who had Wilm's Tumor as a child. I was diagnosed at 9 years old and am now 27. I went through intense treatment and am lucky to be alive (as we all are, I'm sure!). I just wanted to connect with others who have had long-term physical/mental/emotional affects of childhood cancer.

Thank you!
