It was as if it appeared one day out of nowhere. Now, it's changing the Brend family for the next year. Or possibly forever.

One day toward the end of February, 3-year-old Taylor Brend, Rochert, had an ear infection. Her mom, Kristi, took her to the doctor on a Saturday. That day, Taylor had a lump appear on her right side, above her stomach.


"I swear it came in a day," Kristi said.

The doctors weren't certain what it was, so they did an ultrasound and CAT scan.
