In 2010, Melissa developed an acute pain in her side. What we thought was a strained muscle turned out to be a large tumor in her abdomen. Scans showed spots in her chest and lungs. She was diagnosed with Stage IV Wilm's Tumor. She had surgery to remove the tumor and 26 weeks of Chemo-Therapy. She was due to start radiation when another tumor was detected. More surgery, aggresive Chemo-Therapy & radiation followed in 2011.
