At three, Dulcie was diagnosed with a Stage 2 Wilms tumour, the most common type of kidney tumour occurring in children. Her treatment plan, which was a combination of surgery to remove the tumour and chemotherapy, wasn’t unusual for her diagnosis. However, the brave toddler and her mum struggled with the terrifying process.
“Dulcie’s first chemo was awful. Even though numbing cream is put on the site they’re going to inject, there’s still pain. It was traumatic hearing her scream and watching her struggle,” recalled Dulcie’s mum, Nami.
That was just the beginning. At the end of 8 months, little Dulcie endured 9 surgeries and 31 weeks of chemo.
