A minor fall, and unexplained tummy pain caused Francesca’s mum and dad to look further for a diagnosis. They were not expecting cancer in the form of a Wilms’ tumour. Francesca has had two rounds of chemotherapy and her left kidney has been removed. She is now on maintenance chemotherapy until February 2023.
