Young girl, family look to bright future
On Oct. 24, 2010, Amanda and Torey Kauth took their 6-year-old daughter Julia to the walk-in clinic at the River Falls Area Hospital with a bad stomach ache.
Soon, she was having a CT scan, and Amanda and Torey were being told their daughter had a "growth" on her kidney.
"It was scary because we didn't know what was going on," said Amanda. "We thought maybe appendicitis, worst case."
But what Julia had wasn't appendicitis. It was cancer. Julia had a Wilms' tumor.
