In December of 2010, Jacob Flesher, the five-year-old son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Flesher, was diagnosed with Stage IV anaplastic Wilm's Tumor. He underwent surgery to remove the tumor and one of his kidneys, and spent Christmas 2010 in the hospital. The cancer had spread to both of his lungs and adrenal gland. Jacob is undergoing a regimen of chemotherapy and radiation at the University of Iowahospital. Jacob finished treatments August 16, 2012.
March 2012 - After a six month remission the cancer has returned in his lung. 16 weeks of Chemotherapy followed by a stem cell transplant was completed in August 2012.
January 2013 - Three nodules seen on scan. Biopsy confirms cancer has returned. Enrolled in clinical study at Mayo in Rochester but after two months one nodule has grown by 50% so Jacob is no longer eligible for that study. Jacob is now under the care of a hospice nurse at home with his family who are enjoying their time with him and keeping him as pain-free as possible.
