Chloe's story

20 Feb 2018

Chloe Filtness rang the bell, signalling the end of seven months of treatment.

The Filtness family’s world turned upside down on Valentine’s Day this year on hearing three-year-old Chloe has been diagnosed with stage five Wilm’s tumour.

Chloe’s prognosis was not good, as her tumour had developed in her kidney lung and lymph nodes and needed aggressive treatment to stop it in its tracks.

Over the past seven months Chloe has received chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery to remove one of her kidneys.

After spending the better part of the year at the Oncology Treatment Centre at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, the Filtness family came in to ring the bell.

Help kids like Chloe ring the bell by supporting this year's Radiothon.

On Friday November 17 the Hospital will be jam-packed with entertainment for the whole family, with the day being broadcast on Smooth FM and Channel 7.
