My Story

Hi! My name is Eleanor Ruth Dickson and I am 2 1/2 years old. I live with my parents Liz and Jeremiah in Colorado Springs, CO. I have been having stomach pains for about 5 months and thought I had food allergies. My mama took me to see a Pediatric GI specialist and he found a mass on my right abdomen. The next day, 1/8/10, I had an ultrasound that found a 13 cm mass that engulfed my right kidney. The prognosis was kidney cancer. Later that night I had a CT scan that found masses on my lower lungs. On 1/9/10, I had surgery to remove my right kidney and I was diagnosed with stage 4 favorable Wilm's tumor. I start Chemo on 1/18/10 to kick cancer's rear! Please pray with me in this fight.

Updates will be posted about once a day in the "Journal" section of this site.

If you would like tangible ways to help (other than prayer), you can access the Dickson family's personal Care Calendar site,
visit www.carecalendar.org and enter the following
information in the appropriate spaces:

    CALENDAR ID      :   30009
    SECURITY CODE :   5407

Furthermore, a medical fund has been set up to help defray as many of the expenses as possible connected to Eleanor's recovery process. This fund will only be used for Eleanor's medical expenses throughout her life. 

You may donate in two different ways:
1. Send a check to David and/or Erica Morrow, 2018 Fillmore St. NE, Minneapois, MN 55418. Please write "Eleanor Dickson" in the memo line. This check will be deposited into a separate account that is accessible to Jer and Liz.
2. Make a donation via Paypal to the donation's account at eleanorsmedicalfund@gmail.com.

Both donations go into the same account. The way you give is simply a matter of your preference. Please be advised that when making a Paypal donation, doing a bank account transfer versus using a credit card will keep additional fees from being taken out of your gift as commission to Paypal.

Thank you so much for supporting Eleanor through this journey!
