Cavernous Malformations

Health problems can come out of nowhere, and that’s something 13-year-old Taylor Hermeling knows all too well. One day she was fine, the next she unexpectedly fell in the shower. Knowing something was off, Taylor immediately called her mother, Melissa. “We really thought it was dehydration or something like that,” Melissa said.
