CureSearch Walk Heroes – Krislynn

Our daughter Krislynn was diagnosed with Stage 4 Wilms tumor (Kidney cancer) which spread to her liver, lungs, abdominal nodules, and enlarged lymph nodes on 10/15/2016.

Her treatment was brutal.

  • Treatment COG AREN0533 with DD4A, Viscrstine/ Dactinomycin/ Doxorubcin, Cyclophosphamide and Etoposide
  • 11/2016 Right kidney removed
  • She had intense abdominal and lung radiation.
  • She relapsed in early 2017 to her right lung and original tumor site.
  • Four rounds of ICE. More chemo
  • Booster radiation.
  • High dose chemo and stem cell rescue

Her next biggest hurdle is puberty. That’s when we will know (hopefully) if she will need a kidney transplant sooner (teenager) rather then later in life (adult). I am thinking she will be well into adulthood before she needs one.

Due to all the chemo she received she’s at increased risk for developing a secondary cancer. The most recent drug she received was made in the 1980’s.

Yet she still smiles
