Biography

Arthur is clever little boy who has always loved construction, trucks and animals from being very little. He was born early via emergency caesarean. Measuring big and wanting to be in the world. Always healthy as a baby and toddler. He started kindy early this year, but has since stopped due to his diagnosis. Arthur was well and we had very limited signs of his illness. Arthur had become a fussy eater and we put it down to be just being a toddler, we took him to the doctor one morning after complaining of pain in his lower stomach and pelvic region and having vomiting. Our doctor referred us to an ultrasound as he had a distended abdomen. The ultrasound ultimately found a mass of his right side. Our doctor had us go the Queensland Children’s hospital in Brisbane where our amazing oncologist Dr Tim Hassall was waiting for us to guide us through the diagnosis and testing to determine our course of treatment. Arthur had further ultrasounds, CT scans and X-rays.
Since his diagnosis with his Stage 3 Wilms tumour he has had a port inserted and a biopsy. 6 weeks of chemotherapy. Then a radical nephrectomy (removal of his right kidney. After a small break in treatment to recover he had 7 days of radiation. He is now part way through his 33 weeks of chemotherapy. We are due to have scans this week coming to see how the treatment is progressing and we are hopeful for it be positive news after so many hospital stays and heartbreak.
