Waxhaw, NC

“I fought for my life...

Adam was like most three-year-old boys.  He was full of energy and loved to play with trucks and build forts.  When he complained of a stomachache and had a bout of vomiting and fever, doctors thought he had appendicitis.  However, a CT scan showed that Adam had a Stage IV Anaplastic Wilms’ Tumor, a very rare childhood kidney cancer.

During his treatment, Adam received 123 rounds of chemotherapy and 18 days of radiation while battling multiple lung infections.  He went into cardiopulmonary arrest twice and was on life support for three weeks. Through all of this, Adam fought for his life, receiving red cells and platelets on a weekly – sometimes daily – basis, supporting him through his chemotherapy and fighting the cancer.

After 310 days and nights in the hospital, Adam was able to go home with his family, thanks to the doctors and nurses at Levine Children’s Hospital and local donors like you.

Today, Adam is like any other boy – back at school, playing video games, baseball and flag football with his friends.

CBCC is the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals.  Every drop stays here. Saving local lives.
