Meet Adric

Adric is responding to treatment well for a rare kidney cancer, most commonly found amongst children ages three to four 

Adric is five years old and from the Ashanti region of Ghana. He is the youngest of four children. His mum, Gyasi, used to work as a street trader but had to give up her job when her son got sick.

Leaving her other children in the care of her sister, Adric and Gyasi travelled to the hospital; a journey that took them two weeks. Fortunately, the family was immediately referred to Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, supported by World Child Cancer, where he was diagnosed with Wilms tumour (a kidney cancer).

When we got to the hospital Adric’s stomach was very swollen. It was sad to see my child in so much pain. We are grateful for the support we were given by the hospital and the treatment, which has helped a lot.

Adric's Mother, Gyasi

Adric has completed the pre-operative chemotherapy treatment, undergone radiation therapy and is currently on post–operative chemotherapy, coming to the hospital once a week.

After twelve weeks he completed all of his treatment and we are delighted to hear that he is currently doing well.

Adric can’t wait to go back to school and play with his friends again.

Thanks to supporters like you, over the past five years, World Child Cancer has worked with our partners to increase the Wilm’s Tumour survival rate from 52% to 68.5%, over seven centres across four Sub-Saharan countries. 

We are grateful to our donors for their generous support, which is helping children like Adric receive the best possible cancer treatment so that they can minimise delays in their studies and have the childhood they deserve. Donate here.
