Esmeralda is a playful, loving girl who loves to play with dolls and watch Dora the Explorer. When she was found to suffer from Wilms tumor, her family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Esmeralda’s treatment will include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
